Point of pride:

Rees-Jones Hall facilitates creative, intellectual ‘collisions’ to encourage student/faculty collaboration across multiple fields.

Situated in a nice residential neighborhood, TCU is spread over 277 beautifully landscaped acres, with more trees, grass and flowers than you would expect. The campus is four miles from downtown Fort Worth, but you will find conveniences such as banks, drugstores and a grocery store within walking distance of your residence hall. The Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is just 30 miles from TCU.


The Housing and Residence Life office in PE Clark Hall has many resources for students looking for homes off campus. We provide students with some tools to assist them in finding a place that will maximize their enjoyment in their new living experience. Currently, there is limited housing on campus for TCU juniors and seniors. However, there is a range of off campus housing close to campus to fit students needs.
