The latest incident happened early Thursday morning at N. 13th Street and W. Girard Avenue....A 24-year-old graduate student was captured on surveillance tape talking on his iPhone outside his apartment while the suspect rode by him on a bike and sized the victim up...
this isn't temple's campus, it was 1 am or so, it's a block from the projects, and he was using his iphone in public. be careful about flashing expensive items esp in desolate, shady areas such as 13th and girard. I do walk to temple but I never stray off broad. thigns do happen on broad itself, but less often.

I think with the nice looking low income housing and renovation of Diamond Park, west portion of North Philadelphia near Temple will improve slowly. East of Temple likely to stay the same or get worse.

honestly i go to temple and i looked at most of the responses and none of these people seem to actually go there, people say its bad and everytime i told someone i wanted to go here they all tried to tell me how awful it is and how bad the area is and i really dont see it. i mean when u get to the "bad areas" near campus u can tell the difference but i didnt feel like i was really in danger, as long as you're smart about it you wont get in trouble, ive explored all around campus ive even walked the 23 blocks from campus to center city which is supposed to be a death wish and i gotta say it only seemed bad for about two blocks and everything else seemed fine, and this was at 12 o'clock! its a great school, great people and keep in mind that there is crime in every city

I've been to West Newark, South Bronx, SE Washington DC, South Central Los Angeles, and Oakland. I've seen a lot of slums and hoods. And that area just south of the campus around Broad and Oxford and the other area just east of the hospital is probably the worst I've ever seen in terms of open air crime, quality of life, and structural abondment. Temple's a great school but I would imagine that the students there are more endangered there than they are here at RU-NWK, which is right at the center of Newark. Worst neighborhood in America from what these eyes have seen.
