    OneCard Policy

    OneCard Policy

    As of Monday, April 22, 2013, all patrons must present a valid, scannable TU OneCard in order to access any of Campus Recreation facilities and to participate in any program or event.

    A valid TU OneCard must:

    • Belong to an authorized ID holder*
    • Be scannable (not damaged)
    • Belong to the presenter
    • Be the most current edition of a TU OneCard (ID cards that have been reported as lost can not be scanned)

    *Authorized ID holders include current Towson University students, faculty and staff and alumni with a membership.

    This policy applies to all Campus Recreation facilities in Burdick Hall, including the Fitness Center, Gymnasiums, Pool, Climbing Gym, and Mezzanine.

    Participants must also present a valid TU OneCard to participate in any Intramural game, WVC group exercise class, Outdoor Trip Center, Adventure Pursuits clinic, or to attend a Campus Recreation Special Event.

    Requiring a TU OneCard is the most effective way for Campus Recreation to guarantee that all users have proper authorization thereby ensuring all patrons safety.  It also facilitates operational consistency for student staff and allows for appropriate assessment of facility and program users.

    The OneCard is the official Towson University ID card. For more information regarding lost, stolen or damaged OneCards, please visit the official OneCard website or call the Auxiliary Services Business Office at 410-704-ASBO (2726).
