The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Temple University is a lifelong learning academy where people 50 years and older attend classes and pursue the joy of learning without the traditional academic requirements of tests and grades. All classes are held during the day in Center City Philadelphia.


OLLI at Temple is unique among educational programs in that 60% of its courses are “walk-in.” You do not have to inform the program that you plan to attend a walk-in course, nor do you have to stick with it the entire semester. The remaining 40% of our courses require registration in which regular attendance is expected.


NOTE: At this time, membership for OLLI at Temple University is closed. For the first time in our program's history we have reached 1,300 members!

Thank you to all of our wonderful members, outstanding faculty, and dedicated volunteers!
