TU is a valued member of the greater Towson community, and nearby residents enjoy many of the resources the campus has to offer.
TU is proud of its tradition as a community-engaged university. The university offers a host of opportunities for community members and families to engage with campus. In addition, TU connects with community members through service learning, community service, civic engagement programs, community-based partnerships and other outreach projects.
Partnerships are central to this role as a community-engaged institution. TU is committed to working with our community partners in the Greater Baltimore region to address community needs, provide learning opportunities for our students, and advance the research and scholarship of our faculty.
From jazz to drama to art exhibits and film screenings, Towson University programs are open to the public.
Towson University plays a big role in keeping its community members healthy and fit.
TU’s partnership with the small northeastern Maryland town of Port Deposit is helping to save an endangered species.
Your home away from home is a short walk from campus. The Towson University Marriott Conference Hotel — an all-suite hotel — caters to extended-stay visits but is perfect for weekend trips as well. The hotel, like the university, is only 30 minutes from BWI airport and offers free on-site parking.
