Living in Lubbock
Lubbock is an impressive city in the heart of West Texas. The cost of living is low
and housing is readily available and affordable. Texas Tech University is located
in Lubbock and is home to approximately 25,000 undergraduate students. Texas Tech
is a member of the Big 12 Conference so there are plenty of college sports to watch.
The university community also has active theater, music and drama programs providing
many opportunities for both local and traveling groups to perform. Lubbock is also
home to a professional symphony orchestra and a school of classical ballet.
Lubbock combines the ease and convenience of a smaller town with the cultural and
recreational opportunities of a large college community. There is very little traffic,
you can park everywhere you go, and you can purchase a home on a resident's salary.

In our program, residents not only work together, they also socialize and support
each other through the ups and downs of our personal and professional lives. Group
activities, such as our annual retreats and volunteer outings, help us learn more
about one another. We also make time to play together as well! From department-wide
social events such as the annual holiday party to impromptu BBQs, the faculty and
residents at Texas Tech are like family.
