This summer, the Howard Gittis Student Center will undergo renovations in both its food court and atrium.

Due to this project, services and facilities will operate under different hours.

The main entrance of the building at 13th Street and Montgomery Avenue will close at 8 PM on Friday, May 12, and will remain closed until mid-August. Access will be redirected to the Student Center South entrance on 13th Street.

The bookstore will be open for regular summer hours: 9 AM to 5 PM Monday through Thursday and 9 AM to 4 PM on Fridays. However, the store will be closed June 2 through June 16. Textbooks and other course materials will only be available at the Barnes & Noble on the corner of Broad Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue, including orders placed online through the Temple bookstore website.

The UPS Store will also be open regular summer hours: 9 AM to 6 PM Monday through Friday. Once again, the exception is June 2 through June 16 when it will be closed.

Philadelphia Federal Credit Union will remain open for its normal hours of 8 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday, and Graphics Media Center will be open 10 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday. The Office of Sustainability and Blackstone LaunchPad will remain open 9 AM to 5 PM with limited closures, which will be posted.

The Student Center Information Desk will temporarily move to the south lobby starting on May 15. All conference rooms and administrative offices will be available throughout the renovation.
