We are working diligently to create a safe and healthy learning environment.

TTUHSC’s phased approach for returning students to campus is tailored for our specific university and goes above and beyond the minimum standards established by federal, state and local government authorities and guidance from the CDC in addressing COVID-19 related cases. In Lubbock, TTUHSC has been certified as “Lubbock Safe,” which designates our commitment to go beyond the minimum state standards, providing additional confidence and safety for our employees and customers.
