Of Towson University’s 2,700 enrolled freshmen, about 2,500 will live on campus, and move-in day is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 22.
Not every student is moving on that day; some have already arrived and some will be coming to campus later, university spokesman Matt Palmer confirmed. It will be the largest single day move-in for the university, however. Classes begin Aug. 26.
Cross Campus Drive will be closed to through traffic from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. For students moving in, the road will be one way from York Road to Osler Drive. Emerson Drive will have one-way traffic from Towsontown Boulevard to Osler Drive from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
Towson University anticipates that this academic year will bring its largest enrollment yet, with 20,000 undergraduates and 3,100 graduate students. University officials have said before that the school plans to cap its enrollment around 25,000.
