Campus Housing: The best Dorms are in west village and the crappy dorms are pretty,an and Scarborough since they have no AC and are on the other side of campus

Campus Housing: I loveeee living on campus! You get to meet great people in your building and other buildings. I feel like I know more people because I have lived on campus for two years. There are always great programs that are hosted by the RA's or The University Residence Government who focuses specifically on each student living in the halls. West Village has some of the newer dorms, but its a longer walk to class. Right in the middle of everything is the Glenn Towers! But for me the dorms with the best community is Prettyman, Scarborough, and Residence Tower.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I am a commuter. I have never visited a dorm on campus so I would not know.

College Senior

The dorms in Towson are good. In fact, about a third of the undergraduate students at Towson live on campus. However, each has its pros and cons. The Towers tend to be the most desired by incoming freshmen because they are known for the funny roommate stories, funny intoxicated hallmates, and the most interaction among the halls. The dorms that are considered the greatest are so spacious that they make other dorms look bad. However, the dorms that are not considered that great are actually closer to classes and some of the better dining halls. Likewise, the dorms that are louder and more exciting tend not to have as much quiet time as opposed to other dorms.

For the most part, the dorms at Towson are all unique in their own ways. Some are clearly better than others, depending on what you are looking for in on-campus living, what would make your life more convenient, and what would make you the happiest. The dorms really are about what you would like from your college experience. In general, students agree that housing in Towson is, for the most part, superior to other colleges that they have seen.
