You’ll find Towson University in Towson, Maryland—right in the middle of all the action on the vibrant East Coast. Our suburban campus is just eight miles from downtown Baltimore, and a quick trip by car, bus or train to Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York City.
The town of Towson is steps away, with its tree-lined residential streets, bookstores and movies. Towson Town Center is one of the region’s largest malls, offering 200 retailers like Banana Republic, Benetton and Coach, plus GAP, Macy’s and H&M. If you want diverse restaurant options, you’re only a few blocks from some of the best.
Head to downtown Baltimore for attractions that get you away from campus. The beautiful Inner Harbor features the National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center and the American Visionary Art Museum, plus the nightlife of Power Plant and Power Plant Live! For sports fans, two of the nation’s hottest teams are within walking distance from the Harbor: the Baltimore Ravens and the Baltimore Orioles.
Take a water taxi or walk a neighborhood street and find a whole new experience. Grab a great meal in Little Italy. Pub food? Try Fell’s Point or Federal Hill. Does Greek sound good? Head a couple of miles east to Greektown. Want a show after dinner? Check out the historic Hippodrome Theatre or the renowned Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. There’s so much more to discover!
If you can’t get enough history, head to D.C. for any of the 18 Smithsonian museums and galleries. Tour the White House or see the Supreme Court. Pack a picnic and hang out on the National Mall, or dine fine in some of the world’s best restaurants. It’s all waiting for you when you come to TU!
