About TU


Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) monitors the university to minimize risks in campus health and safety.  Whether addressing indoor air quality or waste management, EHS provides centralized, state-of-the-art education, inspections and hazard management that increase compliance with federal, state and local standards.  In doing so, our department helps to maintain a safe and secure environment for the campus community to learn, work and live in.

Towson University maintains a log of fires that occur in on-campus student housing as part of new requirements in the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008.  Every year, beginning October 1, 2010, a yearly summary will be included in an Annual Fire Safety Report.  Direct all questions regarding the fire log to the Department of Environmental Health and Safety at (410) 704-2949 or safety@towson.edu.
