About TU


Freshman Resident Permit Information

As a result of over 700 beds being added to the West Village housing area and additional construction on campus, it is highly likely that parking for freshman residents will not be available beginning with the Fall, 2016 term.  Please monitor the Parking & Transportation website and T3 Announcements over the coming months for updated information.

As of now, freshman residents are only eligible to purchase an annual West Village Resident parking permit, regardless of where their housing is located on campus. Freshman resident students are defined as students with 29 or fewer credits who live in housing located on University property, including Millennium Hall, Paca, Tubman, Barton, Douglass, and Towson Run. Parking for West Village Resident permits will be available on the upper levels of the West Village Garage. Please read all signs before parking.

Please note that West Village Resident permit holders may NOT park in the designated "All TU Permits Valid" areas of the West Village Garage Monday - Friday until 3pm .

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., which can be done online.  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.


Exception Requests

Freshman residents who wish to request an exception to park on campus may do so by completing a resident exception request form. Documentation must be included as indicated on the form. 

Exceptions will only be granted for extreme situations - typically those that are of a medical nature.  Work related requests will not be considered.  At its discretion, parking services will determine if an exception will be granted.  If it is granted, the parking location will be determined by the department.  Individuals receiving an exception should expect to be assigned parking at the Towson Center lots.


Freshman Waitlist

In the rare event that all of the allocated Freshman resident permits are sold, a waitlist will be available for Freshmen residents. However, having a space on the waitlist does not guarantee that a parking permit will become available for purchase.
