Towson University and shopping

My daughter will be attending Towson this fall. She will not have a car. Is there a grocery store within walking distance or public transportation to get to one?

There are several little stores and a larger grocery store right in that area. If your daughter is living on campus (and not in one of the apartments close by) I am assuming you are required to purchase a meal plan for at least the first year so you are thinking she will just need snacks and such for her room.

There is a shuttle that goes off and around campus see link for schedule and route:

There is a public bus system that runs by the campus. Closest supermarket is probably a little more than a mile across from towson town mall. Should contact admissions or check out school website which cam give you more specific info.

I lived in a dorm at TU and walked to my job at the Towsontown Center. It is not that far. There is a Trader Joe's and across the street there is a Super Fresh. I got a car my senior year and acquired so many parking tickets I had to take a second job to pay them off. Walking is the way to go.
