Temple University has prioritized the health and well-being of our community with a blend of in-person and virtual learning. For the fall 2021 semester, we are planning primarily in-person or hybrid courses with a substantial number of students returning to campus. We hope to return to a vibrant campus experience, with our residence halls, dining halls, student center and academic buildings, as well as our athletic and recreational facilities, open this fall. While the pandemic will still be with us, in an effort to support physical distancing, the university has reduced classroom capacities around campus and required some classes to be moved online or to a hybrid format. We are hopeful as vaccine distribution continues and we implement our robust on-campus testing program. An emphasis on four essential public health pillars will also continue. Parents and families can review information about the university’s return plan online.
The university continues to follow the guidelines and restrictions put in place through local, state and federal governments, as well as guidance issued by public health organizations, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. More information is available on the Return to Campus page.
