The school has 12,000 students residing on campus and wants to add over the next several years enough beds to accommodate between 16,000 and 20,000 undergraduate students, bringing more students onto the campus. Temple plans this summer or fall to begin construction of a new student housing structure that will add 1,700 beds and cost $150 million. This is awesome news for any investors and developers building, renovating, or planning to purchase property in the near future around Temple University. The big bonus for developers is that Temple does not guarantee housing for student after their first year, so that leaves thousands of students knocking on your doors!
