Don’t Miss Your Shot.

New semester, same mission: Protect the Purple. TCU strongly urges all Horned Frogs who are able to get vaccinated—and boosted—against COVID-19 and to confirm their vaccine with TCU.

Protect the Purple, Win Big

As a thank you for doing your part to protect the purple, all vaccinated students who have recorded their vaccine with TCU are eligible to win weekly prizes and monthly mega prizes like:

  • $5,000 in tuition
  • Ultimate Flex-19 meal plan
  • Reserved parking

Keeping Campus Safe

TCU will continue to stay vigilant in its public health efforts by conducting contact tracing and offering COVID-19 vaccines, boosters and testing at the Brown-Lupton Health Center.

Due to the current Tarrant County Community Spread Level, TCU requires that face masks be worn in all indoor campus spaces to help protect the health and safety of our community.

We are very excited to welcome you back to campus for another great semester of academic achievement and personal growth at Texas Christian University. Teams across campus in Housing and Residence Life, dining, housekeeping, maintenance, academic affairs and other groups have been busily preparing for your return.

What’s Your Why?

Horned Frogs have so many different and personal reasons for getting vaccinated. Whatever your reason, thank you for doing your part to Protect the Purple.

Act Responsibly

Get a COVID-19 vaccine, if you’re able. Reporting your vaccine to TCU helps us monitor the collective health of the campus community, and can reduce the possibility of being asked to quarantine.

Practice good personal hygiene habits, monitor your health daily, and stay home if you don’t feel well.

If You’re Exposed

COVID-19 is still part of our world. If you’re not fully vaccinated or haven’t confirmed your vaccine with TCU, you’ll be asked to quarantine if you’re exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual.

Fully vaccinated, you’ll only be asked to quarantine if symptomatic.
