Visit Tyler

We welcome the opportunity to take you on a tour of our state-of-the-art facilities.

Arrangements to visit Tyler facilities should be made in advance. Once you have scheduled your visit to Tyler, please register here for the Temple information sessions to take a tour of the rest of Temple University’s campus. Make sure you don’t select Temple’s 2 p.m. information session as it conflicts with the 1 p.m. Tyler tour. We recommend that you take the 10 a.m. Temple information session.

Tip: Students taking a tour of either the Art or Architecture facilities at Tyler during the semester should sign up for the afternoon weekday information session. 

Guided tour schedule
We invite you to experience Tyler firsthand. Our tours are offered Mondays and Fridays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., as well as Wednesdays at 1 p.m. You must schedule an appointment for this tour.

Tours of Tyler's expansive, state-of-the-art facilities last approximately 1.5–2 hours and includes all Tyler majors. If you wish to see a specific area of Tyler, please contact Tyler Admissions at 215-777-9090 or tyleradmissions@temple.edu for a self-guided tour map. 

Self-guided tours 
If you are interested in touring Tyler but are unable to join a guided tour, we will provide you with a map of the buildings and invite you to look around on your own. You may also speak with a counselor before or after your tour, if one is available. To schedule a self-guided tour, please contact us at 215-777-9090 or tyleradmissions@temple.edu.

Transfer Tuesday 
Transfer Tuesday is a general information session offered at Temple University every Tuesday at noon. The session offers information about the process of transferring to Temple University, an overview of the institution itself and a campus tour. If you register for Transfer Tuesday, please contact Tyler’s Admissions Office to schedule a separate meeting with a Tyler Admissions counselor.
