Living on Campus 

Off-Campus Housing

Many students choose to live off-campus. Towson University offers an interactive Off-Campus Housing Site to help you get started selecting the right space for you. Log on offcampushousing.towson.edu using your TU ID to search for off-campus housing, create and view a roommate profile, post and search for sublets, furniture and more.

In addition, Off-Campus Student Services can help with questions specific to your off-campus housing search and involvement with TU.

What’s on the menu tonight? Sushi? Pizza? Fajitas? Try all of the above. With 17 dining options on campus, you’ll never have trouble finding something that suits your taste. In fact, you might have trouble finding something that doesn’t.

Towson offers three all-you-care-to-eat facilities at The Glen, Newell Dining Hall and West Village Commons. Our diverse menus offer traditional choices, ethnic and international cuisine, and a wealth of vegetarian and low-fat options, too. We also offer kosher and halal menus.

When you just need a quick break, consider a coffee at our on-campus Starbucks, where the conversation flows as freely as the caffeine. Want to grab a bite before that mid-term or after a trip to the gym? Stop by Chick-fil-A or Jamba Juice — both located right on campus. Or stock up on a few snacks at one of our convenience stores. Go ahead and eat up — it’s all included in the Towson meal plan.

Want even more options? You’ll find Thai, Japanese, Italian, American and many more types of cuisine right in the town of Towson, just a short walk from campus. And for those late-night cravings, many restaurants deliver right to your residence hall or apartment.
