Community Relations and NEWS



Towson University engages with the greater community through service, expertise, and sharing relevant campus news and resources that could be helpful to the community. In cooperation with all of the institution's divisions and departments, the Office of the President takes the lead in fostering communication with the neighborhood associations surrounding the campus and maintaining good neighbor relations.


Why are Towson's Field Lights On?

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 upgrade allows students and the community to get more effective use of recreational Burdick fields. The 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.


Towson U's Future Campus Development Begins with Your Input

How can Towson University and community better serve you and your family? Come tell us.

Towson University's Campus Master Plan is a long-term vision for the future physical development of the university’s 329-acre campus. Every 5 years the Campus Master Plan is updated in a three phase process.

First, the university will analyze the current use of space, seeking input from a variety of internal and external groups. Second, we will share a draft plan with interested groups, incorporating the feedback received in the first phase. Relying on input from the draft plan review, we will finalize our plan and present it to the University System of Maryland this fall for approval. Public input meetings (PDF) were held throughout March and a draft plan will be shared during the summer.

View the draft TU Master Plan at an one of our upcoming public meetings:

Thursday, July 16th

· 6:00 – 7:00 pm: Open Forum (Minnegan Room, Johnny Unitas Stadium)
· 7:30 – 9:00 pm: GTCCA June Meeting – TU presenting Master Plan Draft (Minnegan Room)
