  • Faculty, staff and students have several permit options.  Click on your classification to the right (Student, Faculty/Staff) and follow the easy steps to buy a permit. You will need your TU NetID and password in order to log into your eParking account.  After purchasing your permit, please carefully read the permit purchase letter you will receive via email.  It will provide specific information regarding your permit type and other important details. 

  • Virtual Permit System:  Towson University uses a License Plate Recognition (LPR) system.  This means no need to worry about a hang tag or a sticker for your vehicle.  Your license plate will be used to verify that you have a valid permit.  Make sure you enter your license plate information correctly on your permit application.  Also, make certain 0's (number) and O's (letter) are listed correctly.
  • Visitor Parking: Visitor permits can be purchased at yellow paystations.  Paystations are located in all garages and parking lots on campus.  The ticket from the paystation MUST be displayed on the dashboard of the vehicle, face up.
  • Parking in Nearby Commercial and Residential Areas:  Students and Faculty/Staff members are cautioned NOT to park their vehicles in nearby commercial parking lots or residential communities while on campus.  Many of these parking lots and communities have instituted parking programs that restrict parking to patrons or residents during specific times and violators are subject to fines and towing.
  • Shuttle Routes and Schedules: There's no need to spend a long time searching for the perfect parking spot!  Towson University offers free, convenient shuttle service to all members of the campus community.  Shuttles operate both on campus and in the surrounding community. 
  • Events:  Towson University hosts many events, both for the university and outside groups.  For large events, Commencement, Football Games, Concerts, etc., follow the directions of the Event Staff and signs for parking.  Events held around the campus may close lots temporarily, follow all posted signs.
  • Campus Construction Updates:  Over the next three to five years, the campus will undergo numerous construction projects that will affect many aspects of campus life.  Detailed information regarding campus projects can be found on the Facilities Management website.
