students at a towson sporting event

Students come to Towson University from across the country and around the world. That means your time at TU can be one of discovery about more people and places than you ever imagined.

On campus, you can attend lectures, concerts, athletic events—such as the Tiger lacrosse team in a match-up against Johns Hopkins—and much more. With 200 clubs, 20 Division I athletic teams, and more than 400 arts and entertainment programs every year, there’s always something to explore.

There's a world of opportunities off campus too. In the city of Towson, a 10-minute walk away, you'll find tree-lined residential streets, restaurants, coffee shops, bookstores, movie theaters, and the Towson Town Center mall.  In 20 minutes, you're in the heart of downtown Baltimore, with its unique cultural, entertainment and recreational attractions. Even more things to do await you in nearby Washington, D.C., and in New York City, just a three-hour bus ride away.
