In order to make your transition to Towson University as smooth as possible, we have created this To-Do List with important tasks for you to complete before you start classes.
To see if on-campus housing is available, please check the housing request web page. If the housing application is still open, you must first activate your TU Net ID to apply for housing through the Student Housing Gateway. Since housing is not guaranteed, we encourage you to submit the application as soon as possible. No deposit is required at the time of application. Housing and Residence Life will communicate housing decisions on a rolling basis after the application is submitted. If you are offered on-campus housing, a non-refundable $350 housing deposit will be required to secure your spot. For questions, please contact Housing & Residence Life.
Please note: FTP students may not live in Capstone affiliated housing (West Village 1/Tubman Houses and Millennium Hall).
Now that you have decided to participate in the Freshman Transition Program, there are tasks that you must complete by the deadline dates shown. If you have questions, please contact the department directly or email New Student and Family Programs at newstudentprograms AT_TOWSON.
Please note: The fall Freshman Transition Program To-Do List is updated each year by mid-March for the following fall semester.
