Each year more than 800,000 people come to Towson University to participate in educational, academic, cultural, recreational and athletic activities.
Located in the heart of Towson, Md., the university is in close proximity to some of the largest cities on the East Coast – just eight miles north of downtown Baltimore, about an hour north of Washington, D.C., two hours south of Philadelphia and four hours south of New York City. Towson University is perfectly positioned in the heart of the nation’s Northeast corridor to give you access to a wealth of historical, cultural, entertainment and recreation options.
The university’s beautifully landscaped, 329-acre campus is a blend of traditional and modern architecture, open space, woods and streams. Within walking distance is the college town of Towson, with its tree-lined residential streets, restaurants, bookstores, a branch of the county library, movies and shopping.
One of the best ways to get to know Towson is through our student-led tours. Our 90-minute walking tour gives you a chance to connect with current students and learn about life on campus as you visit classrooms, residence halls and popular hangouts. Campus tours for undergraduate students and campus tours for graduate students are available.
