About TU


Non-freshman Residents (30+ Credits) Permit Information


Many areas have a limited number of parking spaces near the housing complex. Once the resident permits for a specific lot are sold out, a wait list will be available for designated lots. To sign up for the waitlist, you will need to do so through your eParking account. You will need your TU NetID and password to log into your eParking account. Having a space on the waitlist does not guarantee that a parking permit will become available for purchase.

Residents who live in any housing complex located on Towson University property, including West Village, Millennium Hall, Paca, Tubman, Barton, and Douglass, are eligible to purchase a parking permit based on availability.  If space is unavailable at your preferred lot, eligible residents will need to purchase an annual West Village Resident permit.

NOTE: Resident Life parking spaces are restricted to eligible Resident Life employees with a valid Resident Life parking permit.


Permit Sales

Eligible students may only purchase an annual permit.   Resident students who move off campus or no longer need their permit must exchange their resident permit for a commuter permit or return it for a prorated refund. This must be done in person at the Auxiliary Services Business Office. Refunds are not issued after March 30th.

TU is currently utilizing the Virtual Permit System for the academic year.  For more information about the Virtual Permit System, please click here.

Please see information below for specific information based on residence hall locations.
