Temple University Ambler is an ideal place to pursue your higher education--with a convenient location, great course offerings and a friendly atmosphere. Located in suburban Montgomery County, just 18 miles north of the Main Campus (and minutes from Route 309 and the PA Turnpike), Ambler offers the best of two worlds: the coziness of a small college campus plus the excitement and vast resources of a great University. Commuters and residents enjoy Ambler's stunning grounds, state-of-the-art computer labs, "smart" classrooms, vibrant student life, and recreational facilities that include an exercise/weight room, indoor/outdoor pool, sand volleyball pit, tennis and basketball courts, and jogging trail. Ambler's facilities include modern science laboratories, a library, a computer-assisted design lab, and a residence hall. Come join the 4,000 students who choose Temple University Ambler each year.

Ambler offers hundreds of undergraduate courses, day and evening, taught by the University's distinguished faculty. Students can begin almost every undergraduate program at Ambler. Depending on the major, students can take all their courses at Ambler. The most popular majors that can be completed at Ambler include: Business, Communications and Theater (interdepartmental major), Criminal Justice, Education, Engineering Technology, and Psychology. Undergraduate courses include offerings from Temple's Core Curriculum and basic courses in Biology, Chemistry, Geology, and Physics. These enable Pre-Allied Health students to complete the required first two years of prerequisite coursework. Pre-Medical, Pre-Dental, Pre-Pharmacy, or Pre-Physical Therapy students can take all the courses at Ambler required for admission to a professional school. Nurses may also complete the BSN entirely at Ambler. Pre-Law students may remain at Ambler for four years, pursuing degrees in Business, Communications, Social Sciences, or the Humanities. The campus is home to Temple's Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture, unique in its emphasis on urban landscape architecture and its ecological orientation toward open space and landscape planning. The beautiful landscaped grounds feature formal gardens, orchards, wooded areas, and an arboretum.

For a change of pace and scenery, Ambler students can also take courses at Main, Center City, Tyler, or the Health Sciences Campus. The University provides free bus service which runs between Temple campuses in the fall and spring. Students commuting by car will find ample parking. For those traveling by public transportation, the University provides free shuttle bus service between the campus and the SEPTA railroad station in Ambler (also a stop on SEPTA's bus line #94 from Chestnut Hill) during the fall and spring semesters, with limited service during the first summer session.

Ambler attracts students who live or work north of Philadelphia, including those from Bucks, Lehigh, Montgomery, and Northampton Counties. The Blue Route (Rt. 476) also makes Temple University Ambler easily accessible to students from Chester and Delaware Counties. Ambler also offers undergraduate courses in business and education at Bucks County Community College, making it easy for Bucks students to earn their Temple degree at a convenient location.

After graduating, many Temple students continue their graduate work at Temple University Fort Washington. Located in the Fort Washington Office Center, this graduate and professional center features corporate-style classrooms and state-of-the-art computer labs. Students may complete 12 master's degrees in Business Administration, Education, Engineering, and Pharmaceutics, one certification program in Education, and several certificate programs in Engineering and Pharmaceutics.
