Moving In

What are the Residence Halls Like?

TU’s residence halls are an eclectic mix of old and new architecture, traditional style layouts,
cozy two- and three-story halls, high-rise towers, and an apartment-style complex for
upper-level students. Housing options include: International House, Honors, SAGE, and Alcohol free.

You’ll enjoy all of the modern amenities necessary to make your new home a comfortable
place to live and one that will help facilitate your academic endeavors. Rooms are equipped
with basic cable TV, high-speed Internet service and a Microfridge unit. Towson Run apartments are equipped with full kitchens, including microwaves, and common living rooms.

All rooms are furnished with beds, desks, chairs, closets/wardrobes, dressers (except Newell and Richmond Halls), wall-to-wall
carpeting, and blinds/drapes. In-house laundry facilities, lounges, study rooms, and vending
areas are located in each hall. Pool tables, TV rooms, and pianos are also available in many
of the halls. Air conditioning is provided in all halls except for Prettyman and Scarborough.

How Are
Rooms Assigned?

  Room assignments are made in the order that housing deposits are received.
  Roommate requests receive first priority and must be mutual. All roommate requests made by May 1 will be honored if space is available.
  Requests for housing options are made on a space-available basis.
We cannot honor requests for a specific room, type of room, building, suitemates or location of a room within a building. Two-, three- and four-capacity rooms are assigned as regular multiple occupancy.

Temporary Triples
and Other Possibilities

Keep in mind there’s a chance you’ll be assigned to a triple or discounted room. Here’s what to expect:
Tripled Rooms for Fall Semester- Some doubled rooms will be expanded to triples. Students assigned to triples will receive a pro-rated refund once the rooms are returned to double occupancy. All rooms will be de-tripled by spring semester.
Discounted Rooms - some students assigned to discounted rooms (located in Residence Tower) will be asked to remove all personal belongings at the end of the fall semester to accommodate athletes and Minimester students during winter break. Students who return for the spring semester will receive a $250 credit to their account.
Overflow Rooms - Some students will be temporarily assigned to overflow housing. These rooms are normally used as study lounges or rec rooms. They will be furnished to accommodate students until a permanent assignment becomes available. Students will receive a pro-rated refund once assigned to a permanent room.
