Temple University’s Main Campus
Temple University’s Main Campus is located in Philadelphia, an international center of education, commerce and culture. Main Campus is strategically located for corporate partnerships in a hub of the financial, information technology, medical, pharmaceutical and tourism industries.
At the Fox School of Business, we’re proud to have a home on Temple University’s Main Campus that enriches our talented and diverse student community. Alter Hall is more than an $80 million state-of-the-art facility—it’s a place where students, faculty and alumni come to connect and collaborate.
The building offers high-tech resources and amenities such as alumni and student lounges, mentor meeting rooms, research institutes, laptop and wardrobe lockers, breakout rooms, computer labs, lecture halls, auditoriums and the Capital Markets Trading Room.
1810 Liacouras Walk
As the Fox School entered into its second century of innovative business education in Fall 2018, it opened a second “home”—1810 Liacouras Walk. A major undertaking of both renovation and new construction, 1810 Liacouras Walk provides an additional 77,000 square feet across six additional floors for teaching, research, executive education, mentoring and outreach efforts.
The first floor is home to the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Institute (IEI) and the 1810 Accelerator, a space for the Temple University entrepreneurial community to share knowledge, make connections and grow their early-stage ventures. The building also includes collaborative coworking spaces and new classrooms with advanced technology to personify online and traditional learning.
