We have implemented a number of measures to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff.
The Texas Tech Police Department has officers patrolling campus at all times. Officers on bikes and foot patrol buildings and sidewalks.
The Police Department also offers a number of programs to prevent crimes on campus.
Officers can discuss safety topics such as theft prevention, alcohol awareness, residential security and storm readiness.
The Annual Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics report contains information regarding campus crime statistics, campus crime prevention
programs, university resources, and policies and procedures for when crimes occur.
Uniformed guards patrol and open all academic buildings for classes in the mornings.
The blue light means safety.
Texas Tech provides 120 blue phones on campus. These phones offer a direct line to the Texas Tech Police Department. At night, blue lights mounted on top of the phones make them easy to locate.
Texas Tech Student Government Association contracts with Lubbock Citibus to provide shuttle bus service on campus and designated areas off campus during weekdays. Evening shuttle services are provided as well.
TechAlert! is Texas Tech's official emergency alert notification system. Within minutes of an emergency such as severe weather or a school closure, the system sends information via email, text message and phone call.
