Getting Around


With its beautiful campus sprawling out over 1,900 acres, the Texas Tech campus is one of the largest campuses in the United States.

Whether you transferred from a community college or another four-year university, finding your way around campus can be one of the most nerve-wracking parts of transferring here. But don't worry! There are lots of resources available to help make navigating campus a little easier. Texas Tech students are also some of the friendliest around, so don't be afraid to ask someone for help!

A number of students, faculty and staff members choose to bike to class or work from residence halls, off-campus housing, or commuter lots. Bicyclists may ride in bike lanes and streets. Bicyclists may also ride on any sidewalk on campus except a few restricted areas. You can even register your bicycle if your bike is ever lost or stolen. Learn More

Closed Campus

Texas Tech Campus is closed to traffic for the safety of our campus community, including bicyclists, pedestrians, and other vehicles. Due to the high concentration of pedestrian traffic, it is imperative that we limit motor vehicle traffic on the interior of campus. 

Texas Tech Police

The Texas Tech Police Department are sworn police officers employed by the university to protect the campus and the people who live, work, and visit it. University police at public institutions in the State of Texas are sworn police officers, and are vested with the same authority as other police officers in Texas. You can take comfort in knowing that Texas Tech University ranks as one of the safest campuses in the country due the the Texas Tech Police and the numerous campus safety programs. Learn more


"The Tech Police are actual police who give actual tickets that you have to actually pay to the city, not the school. Don't speed on campus. That was a $356 first semester lesson I learned."
