Off-Campus Housing: Some palaces charge a lot but others dont.

Off-Campus Housing: Thankfully Towson is located in a residential area so there are tons of off-campus living options.

Off-Campus Housing: It seems like everyone lives in the same complexes, which can be nice for community but you don't have a ton of options. If you have a car, check out places in Baltimore.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live in an apartment off campus and its in a good location with a good price.

Off-Campus Housing: I am going to live off-campus next year so I do not have the full details yet, but from what I hear it is going to be excellent as I am not fully off-campus as I am still on actual campus which makes for very easy convenience with great quality! For the really far off-campus living they have very accessible shuttles to campus!

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Living off campus is a choice that many Towson students make. There are many wonderful apartment complexes in proximity to the campus, but living in private homes is becoming more and more common. And students love that their options tend to be affordable and convenient. Believe it or not, though, no matter how much students love living off campus, many end up missing the dorms.

One of the best reasons for living off campus is that the majority of nearby apartments are filled with Towson students, which makes living off campus a more comfortable experience. And, although students interact with other students living off campus, this does not take away from the independent stance of living away from the dorms. Every apartment complex is different from the other—some are more like a traditional home, while other complexes tend to party a little more. The choice is yours.
