Welcome to your new home. Living on campus is the best way to make the most of your college experience - it's convenient, fun and a great way to meet people. At Towson, you'll join more than 4,300 students (78% of the freshman class) who choose to live near the academic, social, athletic and cultural events that take place on campus every day. Towson University has many traditions that are geared toward student involvement, including Welcome Week, Homecoming, Family Weekend, Involvement Fair, Fall Talent Show, concerts, football games and Tiger Fest. Get involved and make the most of college! To help you to get involve and settle into your new home, we have staffs that are here to help and support you:
Residence Life Coordinators and Assistant Coordinators are building supervisors for the residence halls and apartments on campus. They are a part of the professional staff members of the Department of Housing & Residence Life. They promote a residential living environment that fosters academics and personal growth in caring, diverse, safe, clean, and well-maintained communities.
All residence halls are staffed with Resident Assistants (RAs). It’s their job to promote interaction among residents on their floors and within the campus community, and to encourage an appreciation of diversity among residents. RAs serve as role models, and resources. They also meet with students and assist in enforcing university policies.
All residence halls have a Community Center staffed by student workers who are supervised by a Residence Life Coordinator . At the Community Center residents may sign out vacuums, movies, games and obtain spare keys in the event of a lock out. The Community Center provides students with on campus directory information, checks IDs and registers guests, aids in emergency maintenance situations, and provides reference materials on campus resources and Housing & Residence Life information.
One way to get the most of your college experience is to get involved. University Residence Government (URG) is a great way to promote a positive living and learning environment, work cooperatively with others and have fun. All residents are automatically members of this organization. Building Councils form at the beginning of the fall semester and work throughout the year with URG. Ask any staff member for more information.
