Towson University to add College of Health Professions building

May 10, 2021
The building, set to open in 2024, will consolidate several programs under one roof.

Towson University in Towson, Md., will break ground this summer on a six-story College of Health Professions (CHP) building in the heart of campus.

The $175 million, 240,000-square-foot building will consolidate CHP’s programs--audiology, nursing, speech-language pathology, occupational therapy and health sciences--under  one roof. It is scheduled to open in summer 2024.

“The support for this capital project and our College of Health Professions’ programming will directly benefit the people of our state,” says Towson president Kim Schatzel. “As the largest provider of health professionals in Maryland, TU’s impact is significant. Now, our faculty and staff, with this first-ever dedicated building, will have world-class resources to support their teaching and research. This will be transformational for the college and its future.”

The building will house a 300-seat auditorium and multiple simulation and skill labs to replicate professional health care environments. Additionally, it will include 10 patient exam rooms, two lecture halls, a maker space shop and lab, and multiple research labs.

Funding for the building comes from the Maryland General Assembly.

Towson plans to seek LEED Gold certification for the sustainable design of facility.

The new facility adds to the more than $750 milllion investment being made in student-facing facilities on campus. Towson opened anew Science Complex this spring, and the first phase of the University Union expansion opens in fall 2021.

A groundbreaking for the CHP facility is being planned for summer 2021.
