Towson offers 16 residence halls on campus that represent an eclectic mix of old and new architecture. 3 of these buildings, Paca/Tubman Houses and Millennium Hall, are managed in collaboration with Capstone On Campus Management. The buildings range from cozy two- and three-story halls to high-rise towers. If you are a new freshman, we guarantee on-campus housing for your first two years at Towson as long as you have paid your non-refundable housing deposit by the payment deadline.
Modern amenities make your new home a great place to live and learn. Rooms are equipped with cable TV, high-speed Internet service, and a microwave-refrigerator unit. All rooms are furnished with beds, desks, chairs, closets or wardrobes, dressers, wall-to-wall carpeting, and blinds. In-house laundry facilities, lounges, study rooms and vending areas are located in each hall. Pool tables, TV rooms, and even pianos are available in many halls.
Our residence halls are staffed by Resident Assistants (RAs) -- specially trained students who work to build a floor-wide community with planned activities and outings. They also offer insider knowledge on how to make your Towson experience more successful. So whether you need help with a problem or just want to hang out, their doors are always open.
