Located in the heart of Towson, Md., the university is in close proximity to some of the largest cities on the East Coast – just eight miles north of downtown Baltimore, about an hour north of Washington, D.C., two hours south of Philadelphia and four hours south of New York City.

The university’s beautifully landscaped, 329-acre campus is a blend of traditional and modern architecture, open space, woods and streams. Within walking distance is the college town of Towson, with its tree-lined residential streets, restaurants, bookstores, a branch of the county library, movies and shopping. The university is also conveniently located near the cultural, recreational and entertainment attractions that Baltimore and Washington, D.C., have to offer.
