However, students also live on the Ambler and Tyler campuses. A few of Temple's oldest dorms feature single sex floors while most newer residences are co-ed, due to the additions of private bathrooms. Additionally, wellness floors have been developed to allow students an environment for healthy living.

In addition, the Student Pavilion, a multi-purpose, 4-court field house provides students with additional recreational space for volleyball, basketball, badminton, floor hockey, indoor soccer, tennis, golf, and much more.


In the Fall of 2005 the University opened Phase II of the Student Center Annex which included a full scale movie theatre, underground multi-purpose room, game room, and computer lounge, as well as an improved meeting and office space for student groups and organizations.

Designed with a variety of workspaces to enable students to work collaboratively or individually, the Center is the largest of its kind in the nation.

Residential Halls

Currently first year students and some sophomores have the opportunity to live in the following housing units: Johnson & Hardwick Residence Halls, Gertrude Peabody Residence Hall, James S. White Residence Hall, 1940 Residence Hall, 1300 Residence Hall, Temple Towers Residence Hall, Elmira Jefferies Residence Hall, and The Edge at Avenue North. Students living on Tyler campus reside at Beech Residence Hall while students on the Ambler campus live in the East Residence Hall. Students enrolled in the Podiatry School in Center City may chose to live in TUSPM Apartments.


The Louis J. Esposito Dining Center is located on the ground level of Johnson and Hardwick Halls located near the north end of main campus and is commonly referred to as the caf. Students not wishing to make the trip to this end of campus may visit the Student Center's Valaida S. Walker Dining Court commonly referred to as the sac.


Graduate students may obtain housing in Triangle Apartments on main campus. While Triangle Apartments is the oldest structure of the main campus residential halls, Gertrude Peabody Residence Hall is the oldest traditionally designed residential hall. In 2006 the building celebrated its 50th anniversary. The structure was originally designed as a women's residence hall with the campus cafeteria in the basement. The Gertrude Peabody Residence Hall building structure has since undergone many renovations to better serve students including a study lounge, game room, fitness center, computer lab, kitchen, and new windows and air conditioning. Many alumni fondly recall their experiences in Peabody Hall, known affectionately as "Peabody Pride". Gertrude Peabody Residence Hall is also known to have been built on land that once occupied one of Temple University founder, Russell Conwell's original homes.


To accommodate the growing demand for housing on campus in recent years, the university has made arrangements for auxiliary housing within Elmira Jefferies, The Edge at Avenue North, Franklin House, and Kardon-Atlantic Terminal Building. Arrangements with Franklin House and Kardon-Atlantic Terminal Building ceased beginning in Fall 2006, however many students still seek individual leases from these buildings.


Surrounding the Temple campus are an array of students living within independently run, local realty housing. After freshman and sophomore years, Temple students are forced to make their own housing arrangements. The apartment complexes on Temple's campus include; The Edge at Avenue North, Kardon/Atlantic Terminal Building, University Village, Sydenham Commons, and Oxford Village.


Many students also chose to live in apartments or row homes. Students may obtain information on legitimate property managers through the Office of Off-Campus Living within the Housing and Residential Life Office which is located at 1910 Liacouras Walk. The Temple University Employs a large police force which patrols the surrounding Temple area and has security booths set up on all edges of its campus.

Temple University Japan

Temple University also operates Temple University Japan (テンプル大学ジャパン Tenpuru Daigaku Japan?), a branch campus located in two buildings in Minato, Tokyo, Japan. TUJ is the oldest and largest campus of any foreign university in Japan, with 2,830 students, about one-half of whom are Japanese and the others being from the U.S. and about 40 other countries. The campus offers B.A. (nine majors), M.S.Ed., Ed.D., MBA and LL.M programs, and also offers semester and year-long study abroad programs for U.S. undergraduates and law students (the latter is the first American Bar Association-accredited study abroad program in Asia). In addition, TUJ has non-degree English-language, continuing (adult) education, and corporate education programs. Temple University is a university in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. ...

After extended negotiations involving the U.S. and Japanese governments, in February 2005 TUJ became the first recognized foreign university campus (外国大学日本校 gaikoku daigaku nihonkō?) in Japan. As a result, its credits and degrees are recognized as being equivalent to those of Japanese universities (while still being regular Temple University credits and degrees) and it can sponsor visas for international students. TUJ students are also given Japanese student identification cards and can obtain student discounts on train passes, mobile phone contracts, and other items.


The one remaining issue of contention between TUJ and the Japanese government is that TUJ is taxed as a for-profit company, even though the main campus is a non-profit, state university. This puts a significant financial burden on TUJ and its students.


TUJ plans to move to a large, purpose-built facility -- Temple Educational Center -- in central Tokyo in 2010.

"There are many factors which I am not in a position to weigh. But there does appear to be at least a possibility that a suspension of such air strikes against North Vietnam, at the right time, might provide the Hanoi [communists] authorities with an opportunity, if they wish to take it, to inject some flexibility into their policy without appearing to do so as the direct result of military pressure"[4]


The seemingly harmless speech infuriated President Johnson who, the next day at Camp David, took Pearson out onto the terrace and began "laying into [Pearson] in no uncertain fashion". Pearson later apologized for the speech.[5] President Johnson can refer to two different people who were President of the United States: Andrew Johnson Lyndon B.

Criticism

The university has been sued by graduate student Christian DeJohn, an Army veteran who charges he is being denied a Master's degree by Temple University due to his conservative viewpoints, in an academic freedom case. DeJohn also testified in 2006 before the Pennsylvania Select Committee on Academic Freedom.


On April 26, 2007, Judge Stewart Dalzell of the U.S. District Court in Philadelphia dismissed DeJohn's case after hearing a day-and-a-half of testimony. Temple's lawyers marshaled an impressive array of witnesses (live and by affidavit), including DeJohn's National Guard squad leader (who had no trouble earning his M.A under one of the professors DeJohn sued) and fellow students who had enrolled in the same classes as the defendant. These parties were prepared to testify against DeJohn's claims that Temple's History Department discriminated against veterans and conservatives. Since the plaintiff's lawyers could call on no other witness to contradict this testimony -- other than DeJohn himself -- they attempted to argue a very different case than the one outlined in the papers they filed with the court. Such tactics caused Judge Dalzell to thunder that the plaintiff's lawyers failed to present "one scintilla of evidence" for the case they led him to believe they were prepared to argue.


Judge Dalzell ended up dismissing all claims due to lack of evidence, although he granted DeJohn $1 for a previous claim that Temple’s sexual harassment policy was unconstitutional.
