Student's Safety and Wellness Resources

Safety and Wellness

The Texas Tech University (TTU) and Edward E. Whitacre Jr. College of Engineering are committed to the safety and wellness of our students by providing various services and resources. 

Make sure you register with Tech Alert to get emergency notification by phone call, text, or email. You are encouraged to review the Emergency Action Plans (EAPs) and watch the videos of Know What To Do In Emergency Events and Surviving an Active Shooter Event Training to be prepared for those emergency situations. Additionally, due to the nature of laboratory or design courses, it is mandatory for you to follow the university safety policies and any additional safety protocols required by the course instructor(s). 

For your wellbeing, various services are available at Student Counseling Center and Student Health Services. The Student Wellness Center provides convenient walk-in services M-F from 8 AM to 5 PM. Furthermore, the Texas Tech Crisis HelpLine (806-742-5555) provides 24/7/365 assistance for students experiencing a crisis or distress.
