Here's what it means for you:
- Opportunities to connect with alumni at an upcoming event, including Homecoming (September 23-25, 2016) and Alumni Weekend
- Access to the Student Alumni Association, regional alumni chapters, alumni societies and meaningful alumni volunteer opportunities
- Exclusive Owls-only benefits, including special offers on auto and home insurance, Temple License Plates (currently available to individuals living in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, or Pennsylvania), discounted tickets to Six Flags Great Adventure and more.
Stop by the Alumni Center in Sullivan Hall--the historic building dedicated by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1936--to learn more about how the Student Alumni Association and TUAA can enhance your on-campus experience. The Alumni Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
There are six Temple University Bookstore locations. Each store stocks the required books and supplies for the campus it serves. Course materials may be purchased through the bookstore's web site for home delivery or pick-up in store. A student's booklist is accessible via a link on the Student Roster in Self-Service Banner. Select textbooks may also be rented instead of purchased. Please contact the store for more details. In order to maximize the number of used books available to students, the bookstore buys back from students books at the highest possible prices throughout the year. In addition to housing required course materials, all stores feature clothing, souvenirs, and giftware imprinted with the Temple name. Graduation rings can be ordered at any time. Academic regalia are available in the months preceding graduation.
You will also find a large selection of snacks, soft drinks, greeting cards, gift-wrap, posters, and health and beauty items.
During the first weeks of classes, store hours are extended at all locations. See signs posted at each location for specific hours during rush periods and semester breaks.
During the summer and semester breaks, store hours may vary. Visit the bookstore web site for more details.

Office of Parking Services
Montgomery Garage, First Floor (Main Campus)
1859 North 11th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19122
Temple University has a variety of parking options at its Main, Health Sciences Center, and Ambler campuses. For its Center City campus, Temple has negotiated parking discounts with nearby garages.
Part-time parking is available for students who park infrequently.
- These parkers are assigned to the Liacouras Garage or the Montgomery Garage. The permit is complimentary and valid for one academic year (September through August).
- Part-time parkers pay $8 per admittance, which is automatically deducted from their Parking Services account when they enter the garage.
- There is no required minimum to fund a part-time parking account, but Parking Services recommends an initial balance of $80. Funds can be managed on the TU Parking Account site.
Semester parking is available for students who park frequently and/or need overnight parking.
- Students who purchase semester parking but do not need overnight access are called "commuters", and the rate for these students is $240 per semester. Commuters are assigned to the Diamond Street Lot, the Liacouras Garage, or the Montgomery Garage on Main Campus, or the Battersby Lot at the Health Sciences Center.
- Students who purchase semester parking and require overnight access are called "overnight parkers", and the rate for these students is $400 per semester. Overnight parkers have 24/7 access to the Tyler Lot, Liacouras Garage, or Montgomery Garage on Main Campus, or the Carlisle West Garage at the Health Sciences Center.
Ambler Campus parkers must purchase a permit.
- Ambler students have the option to pay $84 for the entire academic year (September through August) or $55 per semester. There is no reciprocity between campuses, and Ambler students who need to park on Main Campus will need to register as part-time parkers or park in a visitor lot.
Visitors to Main Campus have hourly parking options in the Montgomery Garage or the Cecil B. Moore lot for $3 per hour, or the Tuttleman Lot for $6 per hour. Additionally, daily parking is available in the Montgomery Garage, Liacouras Garage, 15th Street Lot, and Diamond Street Lot for $17 per visit.
Your Parking Services permit and Temple OWLcard are the mechanisms that control access to your assigned parking area. Failure to display your permit may result in a citation. Also, availability of areas and parking assignments are subject to change during summer, holidays, and some special events.
We pride ourselves in providing affordable, convenient, and secure parking to the Temple community, and look forward to having you as a customer!
Shuttle Operations Department
Shuttles transport students from Main Campus to their off-campus residences and vice versa (Flight) and among Main Campus, the Health Sciences Center (HSC), the Temple Administrative Services Building (TASB), Ambler Campus, and the Ambler train station.

Flight's service boundary around Main campus is Cumberland Avenue to the north; Girard Avenue to the south; Fifth Street to the east; and 20th Street to the west. There are two ways to use Flight:
