Student Rec Center Mask and Social Distancing Policy

Updated 5/20/21

As of May 19, 2021, Texas Tech University has lifted mask and social distancing guidelines.  The current guidelines read as such:

Per a directive from Texas Tech System Chancellor Tedd Mitchell, an executive order by Governor Greg Abbott, and recent guidance from the CDC, Texas Tech University will be revising our campus COVID-19 protocols. Effective immediately, all protocols outlined in the Texas Tech Commitment will be lifted, including the mandatory face-covering policy. Face coverings will now be optional. For those who have not been vaccinated, face coverings are highly recommended to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

The Student Rec Center will operate at 100% capacity.  For our current facility usage, we have a live counter available at: TTU UREC Counter
