The Department of Housing & Residence Life manages 18 co-ed residence halls on campus. These buildings range from modern high-rise towers, traditional styled buildings, and apartment complexes. Residence hall staff members live in each building and work with students to create a community atmosphere.
Housing and Residence Life fosters spaces where all residents succeed academically, develop their sense of self, and learn the value of engaging in community. We transform the residential experience by investing in the power of innovation, equity, inclusion, and collaboration.
Housing & Residence Life opens the door to student success and personal growth by cultivating safe, inclusive, and engaging communities at Towson University.
The central office staff provides administrative support for the entire department and provides assistance and services to students, parents, and the public. Our central staff leadership includes the assistant vice president for Student Affairs, Housing & Residence Life, director of residence life, assistant director of housing, assistant director of business & administrative services, and the four assistant directors of residence life for each of our residential areas.
