To ensure ample commuter parking during the week, overnight parking is prohibited on the core campus Monday through Thursday. The only exception is for individuals who are parked in a resident lot with the appropriate permit.
Those wishing to park overnight occasionally (no more than 2 calendar days per academic year) during the week may only use Towson Center lots 13, 14, 19, 20, or 21; overnight parking is not permitted on core campus or in West Village Garage. Long-term overnight parking is prohibited for non-residents (Commuters, Faculty/Staff, etc.) at Towson University.
Students residing in local residential apartments in which parking is no longer available may not park or store their vehicles on core campus, in Towson Center lots, or West Village garage for long-term purposes.
Overnight parking is permitted in commuter and faculty/staff lots on weekends (after 3 p.m. Friday through 6 a.m. Monday).
Parking Lot Designations and Reserved Spaces
Reserved spaces and restricted lots are enforced at all times. Information about lot restrictions is posted at lots and reserved spaces. The posted information takes priority over printed information and the use of gates.
During peak periods (Monday – Thursday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.), convenient parking on the core campus may be limited. During this time, students who have valid on campus permits are encouraged to proceed directly to the Overflow parking areas at the Towson Center (lots 13, 14, 19, 20, and 21) and in the West Village Garage (part of level 2 & level 3). Shuttle service is available between the Overflow areas and the core campus.
The spaces in front of the childcare center are dedicated to the Childcare center drop-off and pick- up of children. In order to park there, the vehicle must display the Pick-Up/Drop-Off Lot 21 permit and be in the space for 15 minutes or less.
To ensure the availability of safe parking and the efficient use of the parking resources, regulations are enforced year-round. The university has been granted the authority under the Maryland Uniform Citation Code to issue citations on the campus. University citations carry the weight and importance of citations issued by any law enforcement agency in the state of Maryland. Individuals who have outstanding citations may be subject to university sanctions, referral to the State Central Collections Unit (CCU), or administrative holds and fees with the Motor Vehicle Administration.
