Englert Updates Plans for Fall 2020 Housing

President Englert announced updates to on-campus housing and facility operations in the Fall 2020 semester.

Temple is making changes to decrease the number of students living in Johnson and Hardwick Residence Halls. Johnson and Hardwick students will be given an option to stay in those buildings as singles, or to shift to other housing options on and around campus. This will reduce the total number of students in these two halls by roughly half.

The university will be in direct contact with the students whose room assignments will need to be changed. If you don’t hear from the University Housing and Residential Life office, there is no change to your assignment.

All university residence halls and dining facilities plan to open for the fall semester with modifications to promote health and safety measures. This would include using face masks, hand hygiene, social distancing and personal health monitoring.

Temple is also granting students no additional costs to live in a different dormitory.

The university will be reducing the fall housing fees in all Temple owned and operated facilities by 15 percent, due to in-person classes ending on Friday, Nov. 20.

Next week, Summer II sessions will begin. The vast majority of classes will be taught online, with more than 200 students on campus for classwork that cannot be done remotely. The feedback given from students and faculty from these courses will be influential to how Temple will cement Fall semester plans.
