How Does Paca & Tubman Houses Handle Parking?

Can I Use My Financial Aid To Pay My Rent?
Financial Aid and loans can be used to pay for your housing at Paca & Tubman Houses. However, you must notify Financial Aid that Paca & Tubman Houses is on-campus housing, but privately owned and managed. You will need to contact the Financial Aid Office (410-704-4239) to find out what will be covered under your award package. If funds are there, we won’t expect your rental payment until you receive your rebate check, provided you submit the Financial Aid Agreement, documentation of your aid, and the anticipated date that the funds will be available. You must provide to Paca & Tubman Houses official documentation (copy of award letter / printout of Online Services award page) to confirm your award. Otherwise, you will be subject to a five percent (5%) late fee for not paying your rent on time. Please complete and submit the Financial Aid Agreement to Paca & Tubman Houses, not Towson University. Any Towson University based expenses being covered by financial aid will be applied directly by the University. You will then be issued a rebate check for any remaining amount that you can use to pay for your rent. The Financial Aid Office doesn’t pay Paca & Tubman Houses directly.
