Building Signage and Safety Instructions

Your Health & Safety is the foundation of our Texas Tech Commitment

Texas Tech University and the Whitacre College of Engineering have a mandatory face covering policy for all students, faculty and staff:

  • Students will be required to wear a mask or face covering when attending an in-person class.
  • In the classroom, faculty that are leading instruction will not be required to wear a face mask or face covering so that students are able to clearly understand the instruction and for the benefit of the hearing-impaired. To provide safety for our faculty and students, a social distancing barrier will be implemented in classrooms, studios, and laboratories.Face masks or appropriate face coverings will be required in campus buildings by all students, faculty and staff.
  • Faculty and staff will be required to wear appropriate face coverings in all campus buildings with the exception of their private office or workspace.
To keep yourself and our community safe, follow the safety guidance on social distancing and personal hygiene practice. Pay attention to the signage for entrance/exit/traffic flow and classroom arrangement.
