New opportunity helps locate more students in nearby living situation


Towson University has reached an agreement with Aspen Heights, a new off-campus apartment development, to provide additional near-campus housing for students during the upcoming academic year. 

With physical distancing measures implemented across campus—including reduced density in some residence halls and closures of other residence halls for safety purposes—TU’s Department of Housing & Residence Life completed a deal for more TU resident students to live in the apartments at 101 York Road.

“TU is excited to welcome back students to campus this fall,” said Kelly Hoover, assistant vice president of student affairs. “This new opportunity is just off campus and expands TU’s ability to provide a high-quality residential experience for its students. We expect student residents will be thrilled with their experience at Aspen Heights."

The 14-story facility is part of more than $1.7 billion in private and public development less than a quarter-mile from the TU campus. Aspen Heights features fully furnished residences with outdoor entertainment and lounge areas. The apartments are two- and four-bedroom spaces with private bathrooms attached to each room. Virtual tours are available online.

To be considered for housing at Aspen Heights, students must complete the University Housing Off-Campus Apartment Interest Form on the student housing gateway. Students who are 21 and older with junior or senior status will have priority. 

Hoover said all university housing students will be on the same floors with resident assistants. In addition, there will be a residence life coordinator providing oversight and university resources.

Leases for the apartments will be for 10 months, starting in late August and ending in late June, with students billed directly to their student bursar’s account.
