Urban Environment

A true urban campus with permeable boundaries, Temple both reflects and shapes the city and the community that surround it.

  • Philadelphia is the second-largest city on the East Coast and the fifth-largest city in the U.S.
  • Temple is the 27th-largest university in the U.S.
  • The “City of Brotherly Love” brims with history, more public art than any other U.S. city and the world’s largest landscaped urban park.
  • Our region is home to major corporations and Fortune 500 companies, including Comcast, AmerisourceBergen, DuPont and Sunoco.

Students dig a Philadelphia city street to study and understand history.
