Towson University's residence halls are an eclectic mix of old and new architecture,
traditional style layouts, cozy two-story and three story halls, high-rise towers,
and an apartment-style complex for upper-level students.
Housing options include: Global Village, Honors, Alcohol-Free Floors, STEM Community,
SAGE Community, American Sign Language, Tigers Serving Others, Political Engagement
and Career Exploration.
All on-campus housing at Towson University is co-educational (co-ed) with women and
men living in the same building and often on the same floor. In the vast majority
of our co-ed housing, students are assigned to rooms/apartments by their birth gender
with the assigned bathrooms also separated by gender.
Gender Neutral and Special Housing Options
TU also offers a limited amount of gender neutral housing where persons are assigned
regardless of gender. Students must specifically request this housing option and it
is space limited. Another type of special housing option are our Residential Learning Communities.
