With certified career counselors and a staff of professionals, we're here to help you.

The Counseling Center seeks to help students make the most of their college experiences. We work with students to resolve emotional difficulties; improve personal skills; overcome the effects of trauma, disadvantage or substance abuse; and achieve personal goals. If you are unsure if you or a friend needs help, please watch Emotion 101, a video created by the Half of Us campaign to encourage students to get help and remind them that it is okay to seek help.
Towson University’s Counseling Center is the primary source of personal counseling and psychological help on campus for students, faculty and staff. It's easy to make an initial appointment to speak with a counselor. Call 410-704-2512 or stop by the Counseling Center to arrange for a private meeting to discuss your concerns. Our services are confidential and for most there is no fee.
The Writing Center provides individual writing support to all members of the Towson community, including undergraduate and graduate students as well as faculty and staff. We work with writers at any stage of the writing process from brainstorming to polishing the final draft. We help writers develop and organize their thoughts, sharpen their focus, and communicate their ideas more clearly and precisely. We support writers with any type of writing project, whether that is a PowerPoint presentation for a sociology class, a lab report for biology, or a resume for a summer internship.
The Academic Achievement Center is a full-service learning center for Towson University students. Centrally located in Cook Library, we are here to assist students in achieving their academic goals. Our mission is to facilitate a community of learners by coordinating high quality tutoring, structured study groups and offering study skills workshops.
Disability Support Services (DSS) supports the mission of Towson University by providing services that afford students with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in all aspects of the educational environment. DSS promotes a broad definition of diversity that appreciates disability as an integral part of the human experience. The office collaborates with students, faculty and staff to create a welcoming campus that meets the needs of students with disabilities, fosters student independence, and recognizes students on the basis of their abilities rather than their disabilities.
Our goal is to promote physical, cognitive, linguistic, nutritional, social and emotional development in an environment which prides inself on the caring and nurturing of our children, parents and student staff. We also focus on supporting the development and parenting efforts of our student parents whom we attempt to assist, whenever appropriate, with their parental responsibilities.
