It’s an exciting time to be a Tiger, with new spaces open and others underway. Here’s what you need to know about campus construction:

Union Expansion is Open

401 Washington & StarTUp at the Armory

TU offices have moved into the 401 Washington and Armory buildings in uptown Towson. A shuttle route offers transportation between the buildings and TU’s main campus. Departments now located in the buildings include:

  • 401 Washington: Office of Technology Services, University Advancement, Strategic Partnerships & Research
  • Armory: The StarTUp at the Armory

College of Health Professions & Tower C Renovations

Progress is underway on the College of Health Professions building and Glen Towers renovation. Detours are in place to direct pedestrians around both project sites.

  • College of Health Professions: Individuals traveling east-west should use the University Avenue sidewalk or Tiger Way/Newell Avenue. North-south egress is available adjacent to Prettyman Hall and the Liberal Arts Building. Visit the construction map for details.
  • Glen Towers: Pedestrian routes are available between the Towers and Cross Campus Drive, the Glen pedestrian bridge, and Glen Dining. The circular driveway adjacent to Cross Campus is closed for equipment and staging. Drivers should use the parking lanes on Cross Campus for short-term drop-offs and pick-ups. Follow posted detour signs.
