Towson University is committed to serving our greater community through our academic mission and the expertise of our faculty, staff and students. By creating a welcoming environment with our numerous academic, athletics, arts and community engagement opportunities throughout the year, we want our neighbors to consider the campus both a destination and a hub.
The Office of the President, in cooperation with all of the institution's divisions and departments, takes the lead in fostering community relations and openly communicating with the greater Towson community, and in particular the neighborhood associations, non-profits, and businesses surrounding and contiguous to the campus.

The development of Towson University campus is necessary to accommodate the expanding academic, arts, athletic and physical needs of the institution. Through our construction guidelines and procedures, the university will remain mindful of our surrounding neighbors during construction and renovation projects.
Towson University's robust Intramural and Club Sports programs boast more than 5,100 student participants, collectively. With increasing demand for the fields and limited opportunity for informal open play, Towson's recent turf upgrades to the Burdick Fields along Osler Drive and Towsontowne Boulevard allows students and the community to get more effective and frequent use of the space. The LED fields lights are programmed to be reduced by 50% at 11pm to ensure safe egress and any breakdown required and turn completely off at 11:15p.m.
