Our Campus

Our attractive 295-acre campus is nestled in a tree-lined neighborhood and is home to nearly half of our nearly 9,500 undergraduates. Even first-time visitors to our inviting, walkable campus remark how TCU “feels like home.”

Always Looking Forward

Using thoughtful master planning going back decades, TCU has invested more than $1 billion in new and renovated facilities over the past 20 years. Historic buildings that have stood for more than a century have been carefully updated for the next generation.

Take A Look Around


Hive Of Connection

Yes, The Princeton Review rated our student housing sixth nationally, but our amenity-rich living community is part of a more complete experiential picture. Our centralized, smoke-free campus offers modern academic spaces, richly appointed athletics facilities, a freshly updated alumni center, myriad performing arts venues, a popular chapel and a host of community gathering spaces. We are the only college in the nation to have two elementary education laboratory schools on its campus for children with learning differences.

Forever Our Hometown

Fort Worth and TCU have grown together in a remarkably beneficial century-long partnership. While staying true to a distinctly small-town feel, Fort Worth is now the 15th largest city in the county. Many Horned Frogs put down roots here after graduating thanks to the region’s thriving job market.

We’re Purple—And We’re Green

Our campus is more than a pretty place—it’s a functioning ecosystem. We currently operate 23 environmentally progressive LEED Gold buildings, with more underway, and a centralized Energy Management Control System. Our sustainability practices also include campus-wide recycling, a water-saving evapotranspiration irrigation system and an on-campus greenhouse. Designated as a “Tree Campus USA” school, our former “prairie college” is now home to over 3,200 trees.
