Living arrangements: students are responsible for all their living costs. Housing on campus is available in several apartment complexes, see listing here:

Graduate students should choose single-occupancy rooms, unless sharing with friends (different age and priorities may make it difficult to study with a freshman roommate).

Home stay and city living arrangements also possible.


Contact for all academic matters: Dr. Cristian Gutierrez, Department of Mathematics, College of Science and Technology, Temple University.

Once arrived in Philadelphia

The student will attend the orientation meeting at the International Students & Scholars Office, tentatively scheduled for August 18 for Fall 2010. The student will meet with Dr. Gutierrez and Alexis Cogan at the Department of Mathematical Sciences to arrange for office space and participate in the departmental orientation sessions for new graduate students.

The student attends courses, and takes the corresponding exams.
