Freshmen admitted to the university and interested in living in university owned and operated housing (excluding Capstone Properties – Paca House and Tubman House) may go online starting February 1, 2018, 9:00 a.m. – May 1, 2018, 5:00 p.m. E.T. to apply for housing. Students who are not able to pay the deposit online using a credit card can request a housing payment form by emailing housing AT_TOWSON or calling Housing & Residence Life at 410-704-2516.
For University Housing you must complete the online process. This includes paying a $350 non-refundable housing deposit* and agreeing to the terms and conditions of the housing contract. By paying the $350 non-refundable deposit and signing the housing contract the student is committed to living in University Housing for the 2018/2019 academic year. Once admitted to the university, you will need to activate your student email address in order to logon to the Student Housing Gateway (see the 2018 To Do List for more details). Once in the gateway, you will be required to pay the $350 non-refundable housing deposit, agree to the terms and conditions of the housing contract for the academic year 2018/2019, and request other housing options. After having completed the online process, a confirmation will be emailed to your Towson Email address confirming your housing for the 2018/2019 academic year.
*Please Note: Since Paca and Tubman Houses are not operated by the university, the non-refundable Housing Deposit paid to the University is not transferable to Capstone. Also, any monies paid to Capstone cannot be transferred to the University.
If you are interested in housing for the Spring 2018 semester, you can complete our Interest List form online. Should space become available, Housing & Residence Life will communicate with you through your Towson email address and you will be required at that time to pay a $350 non-refundable housing deposit in order to secure housing.
If interested, you can apply to live in housing which is managed through Capstone On-Campus Management (Paca House and Tubman House, are residence halls located on university property but managed by Capstone). Apply to live in Paca or Tubman by completing the required application. You can also visit the university website at Off-Campus Housing that provides listings of off-campus housing options in the community for you to consider.
