TU4U

Reservations for TU4U 2018 will open in mid-January.

TU4U is a celebration of everything TU, and what the university can be for you. You'll get the chance to meet many other students who have been admitted to Towson University, ask questions about your major from professors and college representatives, learn about the Honors College, meet current students from a variety of clubs and organizations, find out information from numerous departments, and explore campus during a student-led campus tour.  You might even meet your future roommate.

TU4U is not required for you to enroll at Towson University. It’s an information day that lets us show you what TU can be for you.
