There are five 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.

Parking Services

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.

Flex parking is available for students who park infrequently.

  • These parkers are assigned to the Norris Street Lot, Liacouras or Montgomery Garages.
  • Part-time parkers pay $10 per entry, which is automatically deducted from their TU Parking Account when they swipe their Temple OWLcard in the card reader. Funds must be added to the parking account prior to use. Attempting to park without sufficient funds on the parking account will result in the assessment of the daily rate. Funds can be managed on the TU Parking Account site.
  • A permit, which is free of charge, is required in addition to Flex funds deposited on the Temple OWLcard.
  • All Flex parkers must renew their parking semiannually in July and January. Parking Services will notify students prior to expiration. Login to TU Parking Account to renew online.

Semester parking is available for students who park frequently and/or need overnight parking (rates are subject to change).

  • 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, the Montgomery Garage, the Bell Garage, the Norris Street Lot, or the Temple Towers Lot 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, Bell Garage, 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 (rates are subject to change).

  • 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 Flex 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 $4 per hour, or the Tuttleman Lot for $6 per hour. Additionally, daily parking is available in the Liacouras Garage, 15th Street Lot, Diamond Street Lot and the Norris Street Lot for $20 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.

You can sign up for parking by visiting the Parking Services web site or one of our office locations.

We pride ourselves in providing affordable, convenient, and secure parking to the Temple community, and look forward to having you as a customer!

Rates are subject to change.
