Towson University (the “University”) requires all students to provide both a current local address and a permanent address. This information must be updated each semester and within 15 days of a change of address.
To assist the University in locating students in case of emergency and in contacting them when necessary and appropriate to conduct University business.
“Local Address” is the address where a student lives while enrolled at the University and actively attending classes.
“Permanent Address” is the address which a student considers a permanent home (typically the address where the student’s family resides). This is the primary address where official University correspondence will be sent unless otherwise notified.
