Though Towson University boasts one of the fewest crimes per capita in the University System of Maryland, the campus is not immune to crime. We ask you to join in our fight against crime on campus by using common sense when making decisions that affect your personal safety. Avoid walking alone in the dark, leaving valuables unattended, or putting yourself in other vulnerable situations. Stay up to date on crime alerts and use our crime prevention and campus safety tips to reduce your chance of becoming a victim of crime.
