8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Freshmen admitted to the university and interested in living in university owned and operated housing (excluding Capstone Properties – Paca House and Tubman House) may go online starting February 1, 2017, 9:00 a.m. – May 1, 2017, 5:00 p.m. E.T. to apply for housing. Students who are not able to pay the deposit online using a credit card can request a housing packet by emailing housing AT_TOWSON or calling Housing & Residence Life at 410-704-2516.
For University Housing you must complete the online process. This includes paying a $350 non-refundable housing deposit* and agreeing to the terms and conditions of the housing contract. By paying the $350 non-refundable deposit and signing the housing contract the student is committed to living in University Housing for the 2017/2018 academic year. Once admitted to the university, you will need to activate your student email address in order to logon to the Student Housing Gateway (see the 2017 To Do List for more details). Once in the gateway, you will be required to pay the $350 non-refundable housing deposit, agree to the terms and conditions of the housing contract for the academic year 2017/2018, and request other housing options. After having completed the online process, a confirmation will be emailed to your Towson Email address confirming your housing for the 2017/2018 academic year.
*Please Note: Since Paca and Tubman Houses are not operated by the university, the non-refundable Housing Deposit paid to the University is not transferable to Capstone. Also, any monies paid to Capstone cannot be transferred to the University.
University housing for the fall 2017 is filled at this time. In the event space becomes available, you can complete our Interest List form online in order to be placed on an interest list. Should space become available, Housing & Residence Life will communicate with you through your Towson email address and you will be required at that time to pay a $350 non-refundable housing deposit in order to secure housing.
If interested, you can apply to live in housing which is managed through Capstone On-Campus Management (Paca House and Tubman House, are residence halls located on university property but managed by Capstone). Apply to live in Paca or Tubman by completing the required application. You can also visit the university website at Off-Campus Housing that provides listings of off-campus housing options in the community for you to consider.
Room changes / room sign-up: May 3 - 5.
Students interested in changing their room should go to the Housing & Residence Life Office during this time period between the hours of 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Any student who did not sign-up for a room previously can sign-up in HRL during this time. Roommate requests must come together. Students with 30+ credits must sign-up to live in an apartment.
Students living off-campus are not eligible to live on-campus in University Housing or Capstone Housing for the fall semester due to the following:
