Housing Eligibility | Towson University

Any student that had completed a 2020-2021 housing application, contract and deposit
is eligible to 
apply for the 2021-2022 academic year regardless of housing status (active contract or
canceled). 
 

The housing application will be available from 9 a.m. on Tuesday, February 9, 2021
through 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 12, 2021. This process will just allow student to 
submit an application, we will send housing offers beginning the week of March 22, 2021 after we determine housing need. 

At this time, we do not have a confirmed capacity number for university housing for the fall but will be working using a small number of bedspaces and will offer housing to as many
students as possible. We 
will hold 40-45% of our housing stock for continuing students. 

Housing will be prioritized for homeless/foster youth, students with MHEC guaranteed access grants, and international students. We will then use the information provided on students housing applications to determine
need to fill the remaining on campus housing spaces for continuing students. 
 During the application process students will answer yes or no questions and provide
a narrative about their on-campus housing need. 
 

Once we send out a housing offer, students will have to sign their housing contract
and pay the $350 non-refundable housing deposit by the desi
gnated due date to secure housing for 2021-2022.
