Temple understands that students and faculty may have questions about classes, grading policies, tuition and more for the fall 2021 semester. The university provides the tools and resources needed to support students’ learning objectives and help faculty with course instruction.

Fall 2021 Updates

Temple is planning for a fall 2021 semester that is primarily in person with a substantial number of students returning to campus. The university has built a fall schedule with a broad range of in-person classes and many faculty and staff members on-site to support our students. We hope to return to a vibrant campus experience with many academic buildings open this fall.

We will also share additional information as it becomes available. Until then, please continue following the healthy behaviors outlined by the university to keep you and everyone in the Temple community safe.

Open Campus Operations

Residence halls, Charles Library, the TECH Center, Campus Recreation and other services that support student life are available for use. An additional slate of support resources, including the Career Center, Wellness Resource Center and Tuttleman Counseling Services, will continue to be available, both online and in person.

Zoom Zones

Zoom Rooms or Zoom Zones are designated spaces for students to use when they need to log on to an online class between in-person classes or when they need an on-campus place to study. No reservations are needed to use a seat or desk. As Zoom Zones have multiple stations, students are encouraged to have headphones so as to not disturb other students using the space.

Available Zoom Zones spaces at Main Campus, Ambler Campus and Temple University Center City are listed below. Hours of operation for Zoom Zones depend on the building in which it is located.

University Libraries Access

Charles Library on Main Campus, the Charles E. Krausz Library Temple’s Ambler Library, the Ginsburg Health Sciences Library and the Law Library are all open.

Safety measures have been implemented to help protect patrons as they access these facilities. We also encourage users to take advantage of the available virtual resources, which include digitized collections and e-books. 

For more information about the reopening, please check the university libraries website for details on what to expect when you visit.

Decisions about all university-sponsored, -connected or -funded international travel by students, faculty and staff are made based on international, national, state and local guidance. See the latest information on Education Abroad programs and our international campuses.
