  • From the airport, take the Airpot line to Temple University Station. Schedule. This will let you off at Berks St, between 9th and 10th Sts. Exit the train from the front and make a right on Berks St. By foot, take Berks Street (west) to 11th Street. Gladfelter is the first tall building on the right. You will see a white security kiosk right outside of Gladfelter (in between Galdfelter and Anderson, the two tall buildings). Continue past the kiosk. You will climb a short set of stairs and pass under a walkway that connects Gladfelter and Anderson Halls. The entrance to Gladfelter is under that walkway, on the right (about 7 minutes at a leisurely stroll). SEPTA Subway.
