Cherry & White Directory

Find contact information for the university community, and personalize your @temple.edu email address with an alias.

Overview

The Cherry & White Directory is the online directory of Temple University students, faculty, and staff. The directory is searchable by name, department, phone number, and Temple email address.

Notes:

  • When off campus, you are restricted to three searches per day.
  • Entries are mandatory for employees.

Search the Directory

Basic Search
The Basic Search feature on the Cherry & White Directory allows you to search by:

  • a person's last name (Conwell)
  • a person's first name (Russell)
  • a department name (Admissions)

To search, type your search information and click the Search button. Note that you can type your search name in uppercase or lowercase letters. For hyphenated names, you must include the hyphen.

Advanced Search
The Advanced Search feature gives you greater control over search criteria. The Search for drop down box allows you to expand your search to include all Temple students, faculty, staff, or everyone or to limit it to students, faculty, or staff.

You can also select from the following additional categories: email address, direct phone, and department. In addition, the Advanced Search feature provides greater flexibility by enabling you to tailor your search by selecting contains, is, begins with, or sounds like from the drop-down box. "Begins with" or "sounds like" are helpful when you are not sure of the correct spelling of a person's name.

Understand Search Results
If you are on campus, all members of the Temple community are included with the exception of guests, Temple University Health System employees, alumni, and retirees (non-emeritus).

If you are off-campus and log in with your AccessNet username and password, you will have access to the same functionality as you would from on-campus. If you do not log in, you will only be able to perform up to three searches per day.
