Health & Wellness

Towson University is committed to maintaining a healthy campus community that promotes academic success and living a vibrant and successful life.


A healthy student is a successful student. A variety of services and programs are offered throughout campus that promote health and wellness, and support your success in college and beyond.

Health Center

The Health Center offers a full range of primary, urgent and preventive health care services for our students. Our staff encourage you to take an active role in your health, and are dedicated to providing the highest level of care, while maintaining confidentiality. The Health Center promotes public health by maintaining immunization compliance for the campus community.

Counseling Center

The Counseling Center exists to help all students deal constructively both with normal and extraordinary challenges and stresses of college life. Through personal counseling and other services, our professional clinicians can assist you to better resolve problems in living, learning new life skills, and increase your personal resilience and resourcefulness.
