Location wise, it is good since it is in the middle of the Campus. So, it is safer than White Hall or other far away dorms.
However, I heard from people who have lived there there are rats and bugs.
There will be more pros and cons I don't know of, though.
It's really dirty, but its good if you're in Tyler because there's an art studio and its like a block from Tyler. It's definitely not the nicest dorm.

With weekly activities that get students involved, the freshman dorms at Temple allow people to meet each other. The dormitory known as "1300" offers single, double, and quadruple suites and apartments. It has a fitness room, a game room, a computer lab, mini-food store, and TV and study lounges. This dorm is located near classrooms and the student rec center. Temple Towers offers the same features. 1940 Residence Hall is conveniently located near a hair salon, 7-Eleven, and classroom halls; it is also clean with good amenities, but there is no apartment-style housing available. The least favorable dorms are Peabody (e.g., “the projects”) because it lacks air conditioning and is rundown, and White Hall (or “Killer Hall”) because outside of this dorm is where most “incidents” occur; you can take a guess by their aliases on why they are the least popular.
It’s a big problem that not all students receive housing. However, Temple is trying to build more dorms. Make sure your housing is in order—especially any financial aid—before you leave for the semester. Follow the letters Temple sends out, so you won’t be one of those people sleeping on your friend’s sofa. If you become one of the unfortunate ones, there are apartments nearby Temple. But don’t forget to keep up with your housing status in subsequent years—there are still students left struggling to find a place to live even after freshman year.
