Towson Unites for Baltimore City

After the unrest in Baltimore City last spring, Governor Larry Hogan called all Marylanders to join in helping to rebuild Baltimore through the Maryland Unites initiative. At that time, the Towson University’s Office of Partnership and Outreach projects database recorded more than 85 active university-community longstanding partnerships led by our faculty, staff, and students that performed health, workforce-training, educational, recreational, and community-buidling work in Baltimore City.

In partnership with Baltimore City Mayor’s Office of Economic and Neighborhood Development, Towson will host a recreational center supply drive benefiting all of Baltimore City’s Recreation and Parks centers from September 28th through October 8th. Collection receptacles can be found in Towson Center, Enrollment Services, Administration, Cook Library, and University Union buildings.

Why are Towson's Field Lights On?

Towson University's robust Intramural and Club Sports programs boast more than 5,100 student participants, collectively. With increasing demand for the fields and limited opportunity for informal open play, Towson's recent turf upgrades to the Burdick Fields along Osler Drive and Towsontowne Boulevard allows students and the community to get more effective and frequent use of the space. The LED fields lights are programmed to be reduced by 50% at 11pm to ensure safe egress and any breakdown required and turn completely off at 11:15p.m.

Towson U's Master Plan Process Outlines Future Campus Development

Towson University's Campus Master Plan is a long-term vision for the future physical development of the university’s 329-acre campus. Every 5 years the Campus Master Plan is updated in a three phase process.

First, the university analyzes the current use of space, seeking input from a variety of internal and external groups. Second, we share a draft plan with interested groups, incorporating the feedback received in the first phase. Relying on input from the draft plan review, we finalize our plan and present it to the University System of Maryland this fall for approval.

Public input meetings (PDF) were held in March  and a draft plan was shared in July.
