Temple University Alumni Association

Sullivan Hall, Suite 100

Main Campus


As a current Temple student, embrace your role as an alumnus/a-in-residence and plug into the Temple University Alumni Association's (TUAA) global network of more than 285,000 living alumni now - before you don a cap and gown!

Here's what it means for you:


Stop by the Alumni Center in Sullivan Hall--the historic building dedicated by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1936--to learn more about how the Student Alumni Association and TUAA can enhance your on-campus experience. The Alumni Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


For more information on the student resources available through the TUAA, call 215-204-7521, e-mail alumrel@temple.edu, or visit alumni.temple.edu.


There are five Temple University Bookstore locations. Each store stocks the required books and supplies for the campus it serves. Course materials may be purchased through the bookstore's web site for home delivery or pick-up in store. A student's booklist is accessible via a link on the Student Roster in Self-Service Banner. Select textbooks may also be rented instead of purchased. Please contact the store for more details. In order to maximize the number of used books available to students, the bookstore buys back from students books at the highest possible prices throughout the year. In addition to housing required course materials, all stores feature clothing, souvenirs, and giftware imprinted with the Temple name. Graduation rings can be ordered at any time. Academic regalia are available in the months preceding graduation.

You will also find a large selection of snacks, soft drinks, greeting cards, gift-wrap, posters, and health and beauty items.

During the first weeks of classes, store hours are extended at all locations. See signs posted at each location for specific hours during rush periods and semester breaks.

During the summer and semester breaks, store hours may vary. Visit the individual store web sites for more details.

They are police professionals who receive state-mandated training at an accredited police academy. The Security division officers work inside various buildings, checking IDs and assisting staff and visitors.

Inter/Intra Campus Bus Service:

The University provides Evening Shuttle services for those students living on and around the Main Campus. The OwLoop or Main Campus Shuttle provides regular route service 7 days per week between the hours of 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. The TUr Door service, which also operates during the same hours as the OwLoop, transports students directly to their off-campus residences. The OwLoop bus will be at every stop, indicated on the route map, approximately every 25-35 minutes. Use this service to obtain secure, fast passage to all major Main Campus locations. The TUr Door service departs at least every half hour on the hour and half hour from the Transportation Hub at 12th & Berks Streets near the Paley library. TUr Door will transport students directly to their off campus residences via the fastest route possible. TUr Door shuttle operates within the area bordered by Cumberland Street to the North, Girard Avenue to the South, Fifth Street to the East and Twentieth Street to the West. The two routes are distinguished by the lettering and appearance of the buses.

A map of the OwLoop bus route and the TUr Door service area, as well as photos of the buses used for each route, can be found at www.temple.edu/facilities/pdf/owlloop.pdf.
