All vehicles parked on campus must have a valid permit during enforcement hours:
Monday – Thursday 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.

cars parked in lot 26 near Glen Towers


Modified Enforcement Now In Effect

Modified enforcement is now in effect as TU Parking permits are not required on campus until further notice. All other parking rules and regulations will remain unchanged during the modified enforcement period.  Regular enforcement will resume once the university returns to normal operations.


Important Information

  • When you see a bus slip, do not park your vehicle there! Remember only buses are permitted in the bus slips on campus. Vehicles may not be parked or stand in or near bus stops.
  • Instead of parking in a bus slip, there are 5 minute free pick-up/drop-off spaces located on the ground level of West Village Garage and on Linthicum Dr. between CLA quad and Dowell. There is an immediate pick-up/drop-off area on Emerson Drive, next to West Village Garage.  Areas are designated by signs. Violators  may be suceptible to citation and towing. Warnings will not be issued. 
  • Permits are not required in most locations from Friday at 3:00 p.m. to Monday at 6:00 a.m.
  • Permits are not required when the university is officially closed.
  • Any citations issued on Osler Drive or Cross Campus Drive are issued by Baltimore County as this is not Towson University property.  All questions and appeals for these citations must be sent directly to Baltimore County using the contact information on the back of the citation.
