Honors College housing is located in the residential community of Douglass House, one of Towson University's residence halls in West Village. The learning community at Douglass House is specifically designed for students who want to integrate residential living with classroom activity and nurture an environment conducive to academic achievement. Honors students who live in Douglass House find it a great place to live, work, socialize, and form lasting friendships.
Douglass House is the required housing location for all incoming first-year students (and transfer students, based on availability) admitted to the Honors College who receive a housing offer and choose to live on-campus. Students required to live in an on-campus athletic team residence are exempted from this requirement. For students who live off campus, residing in university-managed housing is not a requirement of membership in the Honors College. The Honors community on-campus housing option is offered by the Department of Housing & Residence Life. The Gender Inclusive Housing option is available in Douglass House.
Douglass House is considered premium housing due to its location and amenities, and is priced at the premium housing rate.
Living in Honors Housing has several advantages including a strong student community:
Douglass House closes during all university breaks. Students who require university housing during breaks (such as some student-athletes) cannot live in Douglass House, and must complete a request to Housing & Residence Life for the 9 month housing option in another building. Any Honors students pursuing this option will still remain members of the Honors College.
Incoming freshmen and transfer students living in Douglass House are designated for a specific move-in slot during the fall term. Move-in dates are determined by the Department of Housing & Residence Life, and students must follow the instructions and timeline provided by Housing & Residence Life for moving in.
