Housing, Neighborhoods And Cost Of Living
Temple University does offer graduate housing. You must apply for housing after paying your $100 deposit and submitting the Intent to Enroll form sent with your acceptance letter.
Many graduate students live in beautiful Victorian University City, Center City, South Philly, or in the Art Museum vicinity, which is a quick ride using Philadelphia’s public transportation system called SEPTA. Other residents choose to live in Manayunk or Mount Airy, where renting a small home with a backyard is readily affordable. Still others live in Narberth, on Philadelphia’s Main Line, or in nearby Delaware County communities, where campus is little more than a 30-minute drive or train ride away. Information regarding off-site housing options in or around the Philadelphia area may be found at gophila.com or http://www.temple.edu/studentaffairs/housing/off-campus-living/.
The cost of living in the greater Philadelphia area is lower than most major metropolitan areas including Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Washington, DC, and Boston. Additional economic data can be found at: http://www.selectgreaterphiladelphia.com/data/popecondata.cfm.
