Health and Wellness


The Tyler School of Art and Architecture is committed to supporting the emotional and physical well-being of our students, as well as their academic and creative growth.

Within Tyler, before students use our state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, they’re trained on safety practices and proper use. As part of Temple University, students have access the comprehensive health and wellness facilities and resources, including:

Student Health Services
Temple Student Health Services provides affordable, accessible and high-quality care to students, staffed by board-certified physicians, nurse practitioners, RNs and medical assistants to meet every healthcare need. Walk-in hours and appointments are available at Temple’s Main Campus and Ambler campuses.
