University Residence Government (URG) is an organization that represents all on-campus
residents by hosting events, advocating for change, and making the residence halls
a place to call home.
The University Residence Government welcomes you to campus!
We are doing amazing things this year. The General Assembly meets bi-weekly on Tuesdays
from 7-8:30 in the University Union. We welcome everyone and would love to hear your
input about the work we are doing to make this campus ideal for every resident.
Some of our goals include:
- Serve as the representative governing body/ voice of Towson University residents
- Advocate/Initiate change on behalf of resident students.
- Enhance the resident experience and subsequently serve to benefit the entire campus
community and greater Towson area.
- Create, plan and promote programs that engage and excite the Resident community.
URG is a group of enthusiastic individuals working together to instill Towson pride
and community throughout the residence halls.
What is a Building Council?
Each building on campus has a Building Council that is elected annually by the residents
of that building. The Council is comprised of a president, vice president, treasurer,
secretary and building representatives, as well as other positions that may be created.
Building Council is a great leadership opportunity on campus, especially for first
year students looking to get involved.
National Association of College and University Residence Halls
URG is part of NACURH, which represents over 400 schools across the world. As an organization,
NACURH creates environments that empower, motivate, and equip residence hall leaders
by providing them with skills and resources in order for them to excel and positively
impact their campus communities. Regionally, URG is affiliated with CAACURH, the Central
Atlantic Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls. Each year, URG takes
a delegation to the annual national conference and two regional conferences.
How do I join URG?

by students, each hall has a board. URG has an overall executive board along with
building council executive boards, active members and residents. If you'd like to
become more involved in your residence hall, email us or contact the Residence Life
Coordinator of your building for more information. It's never too late to join!
