Temple University is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Temple University is a public research university. In "sober dorms" or "substance free" dorms, drugs and alcohol are prohibited. Some colleges and universities also include drug treatment, addiction counseling, sober living services student sobriety support programs, and additional drug awareness information.

Alcohol use is common on college campuses, however, not everyone drinks. Some students prefer to live in a sober community, free from substance use and abuse.



It is common for colleges and universities to have high rates of drug use and abuse in student housing. However, many students do not use drugs and want the option of living in substance-free dorms.

Apparently, all dormitories and on-campus housing at Temple University are technically "substance-free", according to a housing representative I called earlier this week. Even for those students that are above the age of 21, alcohol and drug use are forbidden, or else "you will get written-up".

There is not a single house or dorm dedicated specifically to substance-free living, however, Temple University does offer a Living Learning Community (what they call an "LLC") called Healthy Lifestyles, in which students share the interests of being healthy, active, and substance free. You can find out more under the Healthy Lifestyles Living Learning Communities web page on the Temple University site. Below are the requirements for joining the Healthy Lifestyles LLC:

-Maintain a substance free living space (i.e., alcohol, tobacco, drugs).

-Participate in two physical activity programs per semester (intramural team, gym class, regular academic course with fitness component, community race).

-Participate in College of Health Professions and Social Work Freshmen Seminar"
