The Village

Temple University’s Home for Student Organizations

Located on the third floor on the South Side of the Howard Gittis Student Center on Temple University’s main campus, The Village offers a variety of resources to all of Temple University’s registered student organizations.  Over thirty locked office spaces and ten open cubicles allow student organizations to establish a vibrant community and conduct their affairs in a professional environment. We also offer storage bins to eligible registered student organizations. Most Village residents hold daily office hours and many offer an “open-door policy”, contributing to the prevalent sense of community and collaboration throughout The Village. 

Additionally, the Village has a large, common area which can be utilized by all students.

How Does My Organization get an Office, Cubicle, or Storage Bin in The Village?

All registered student organizations and sororities/fraternities who are eligible for 3 or 4 STAR/Diamond Rewards are invited to apply for space in The Village during the spring semester each year.  The application for Village Space for 2017-2018 is now available!  The deadline to apply is February 20, 2017. Priority will be given to organizations with 3 and 4 STARS Rewards or 3 or 4 Diamond Accreditation Ranking. Applications will be accepted from ANY organizations that plan to achieve at least 3 STARS Rewards or 3 Diamond Accreditation by May 2017. Confirmation of assigned Village space will be contingent upon the final STARS/Diamond audit.

The Village Space Allocation Committee ultimately decides which groups deserve Village space for the upcoming school year.  The committee considers many factors when assigning Village spaces, including prior conduct as a Village tenant, intended use for the space, availability of other space on campus, and the organization’s overall impact on the Temple community.  Since space is limited, this process is competitive! The quality and thoughtfulness of the application will factor into selection for office or cubicle space.
