Temple University has six dorms for freshman to live in. Each one has its own reputation and things students like or dislike. If you’re an incoming freshman, this might help you out when deciding where to live in the fall. This is the ultimate ranking of freshman Temple University dorms!
1. Morgan Hall
Morgan Hall is definitely the best dorm on campus. The rooms are mini-apartments that include a kitchenette and all have a beautiful view.
2. 1940 Hall
1940 is definitely the nicest of the three suite-style dorms on campus. It’s the closest to the academic buildings in relation to the three buildings on the North end of campus.
3. 1300 Hall
1300 is home to the honors college students. It is located right next to Morgan Hall and doesn’t have the dreaded wind tunnel.
4. White Hall
White Hall is the furthest dorm from campus. Located across Broad Street, it’ll take you an extra 10 minutes to get to campus because of the inability to easily cross Broad.
5. Johnson & Hardwick Hall
Johnson and Hardwick is the nicest communal-style dorm on campus. The Esposito Dining Hall is located on the ground floor of the building, so it’s a very convenient location when there’s bad weather and you don’t want to leave the building.
6. Peabody Hall
RIP Peabody. As of the 2017-2018 school year, it will no longer be a housing option for freshman. It was the cheapest option on campus and gets a bad rep, but everyone who lived in it had an amazing freshman year.
