Roadside Assistance


The university provides limited roadside service to members of the campus community.  This service is provided by Parking and Transportation Services and the University Police.  Individuals requesting service will be required to provide identification and verification that they are either the owner of the vehicle in question or are authorized to use the vehicle. 

Department staff uses discretion when providing service and may deny service at any time for any reason. Services will be provided based on the availability of staff.

Beginning Monday, October 19, 2015, Roadside Assistance Service will include service to TU affiliates parked on Cross Campus Drive.

We will only provide service at locations that are on University property to include: the main campus, West Village areas, Towson Center/Stadium lots & road, The Marriott Hotel, Millennium Hall, 7400 York Road (location of EHS & Osher Learning).
