What's the best way to get to know Towson? Come see us for yourself. Take a stroll through campus on one of our student-led tours, ask our admissions staff your questions at an information session, or attend an open house.
Tours for Students and Their Families
Campus tours for future students are available Monday through Friday and select Saturdays. Our 90-minute walking tour gives you a chance to connect with current students and learn about life on campus as you visit classrooms, residence halls and popular hangouts. It's a great way to get to know if TU is right for you. All campus tours include an information session from a representative from University Admissions.
Reservations are required. Dress comfortably and check the weather forecast before arriving on campus.
Don't want to miss school? Interested in seeing our campus in action at night? If so, then try one of our evening tours! Offered on select Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m., these tours include our usual 90-minute walking tour of campus* while giving you the chance to connect with a student ambassador.
*Sorry, the information session from University Admissions is not available during these tours.
Admitted Student Tours
Still trying to decide if TU is for you? Offered on select Mondays and Fridays at 10 a.m., admitted student tours include a 90-minute walking tour of campus and lunch for the prospective student. If you can't make it here on a Monday or a Friday morning, a regular campus tour is also a great option for admitted students to see why they should choose TU.
Transfer Student Tours
If you're interested in transferring to Towson, this is the tour for you. Offered on select Fridays at 3:00 p.m., transfer tours include a 90-minute walking tour of campus led by a student who also transferred to Towson. It includes a transfer information session with a representative from University Admissions. If you can't make it here on Fridays, a regular campus tour is also a great option for transferring students.
Group tours are available to high schools or organizations with 10 or more students. We offer group tours from September to May on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 10:00 a.m. when classes are in session. The group tour includes a 15- to 30-minute presentation from a member of the University Admissions staff and a 90-minute walking tour by a student ambassador.
Group tours can be arranged by high school counselors or community organizations. The group must include between 10 to 40 high school juniors or seniors or community college students. At least one chaperone is required for every six students.
Registration for spring 2014 group tours is now closed. Groups interested in touring in the fall will be able to register starting this summer.

In the event classes are cancelled, all campus tours will be cancelled. Towson University will post closing information on the TU homepage. A cancellation email will be sent to guests who are registered for a tour that is cancelled.
