Temple University Ambler and the Temple University Fort Washington (TUFW) Graduate and Professional Center bring the vast resources, outstanding faculty, and academic prestige of Temple University to suburban Montgomery County. The Ambler Campus is situated on 187 acres along Meetinghouse Road in Upper Dublin Township. TUFW, where Amblerís graduate courses are held, is just three miles away in the Fort Washington Office Park. Both sites are minutes from the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Route 309 and attract students who live or work north of Philadelphia, especially those from Montgomery, Bucks, Lehigh, and Northampton counties. Route 476 also makes the campuses a quick commute for those from Chester and Delaware counties.

Temple University Ambler offers more than 100 majors, 18 complete undergraduate degree programs, and 11 complete graduate programs to its 4,000 students. The home of Templeís department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture, the campus has beautiful grounds and a distinctive charm with formal gardens, wooded areas, and an arboretum. In addition to our Graduate and Professional Center in Fort Washington, the campus has 20 buildings, including a library with more than 92,000 research materials, science laboratories, "smart" classrooms, distance learning technology, extensive computing labs, a computer-assisted design lab, and residence halls. Outdoor recreation areas include an Olympic-size swimming pool plus tennis and basketball courts. All of these facilities are available to graduate students.

The graduate curriculum is particularly strong in business, pharmaceutics, education, and engineering. Students are often surprised to learn that the Graduate and Professional Center in Fort Washington has one of the largest selections of graduate business courses of any Temple campus.
