The protection of our students is of utmost importance to Temple University. That is why we place such an emphasis on student and community safety and well-being. Here, you will find information about the university resources, services and programs that prioritize safety in our community.

Temple’s Public Safety office provides resources, programs and law enforcement initiatives to protect students, faculty and staff. You can also download our brochure (PDF), which outlines the initiatives and services designed to keep our campus and surrounding community safe.
