Our attractive 302-acre campus is nestled in a tree-lined neighborhood and is home to about half of our 10,000+ undergraduates. Even first-time visitors to our inviting, walkable campus remark how TCU “feels like home.” 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.
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.
You will never be bored here! TCU is known for its connection and community. There is always something fun and enlightening happening on our campus: concerts, Big12 sporting events, celebrations, lectures, art and speaker events, and more. As a TCU employee, you will have endless opportunities to connect with other faculty and staff on campus or to even relish in these events and traditions with your family.
TCU recognizes that a quality, comprehensive benefits program is a great way to show you just how valuable you are to the University. We understand that no two employees are alike, which is why we offer multiple benefit choices.
Eligible employees and/or their dependents are eligible for the TCU Tuition Assistance Program. Individuals must verify dependent status through the Office of Human Resources if dependents are not listed in the Human Resources system. Current employees must work at least .75 FTE.
Horned frogs are known for adapting.
Many people are anxious about the uncertainty of what is happening with COVID-19. You and your dependents may need information or resources to help cope with stress and anxiety, stay emotionally well and prevent compassion fatigue.

The Employee Engagement and Success (EES) team is dedicated to providing scalable programming and expertise that optimizes the success of employee teams and individual contributors campus-wide. EES has identified a clear strategy associated with leadership, professional development and organizational design. Programs/initiatives are categorized and differentiated as follows:
We care about our employees' wellbeing and believe it all starts with work-life balance. Rest and restoration are important, so paid time off is granted to eligible staff and faculty. TCU employees are also able to partake in and observe multiple national holidays throughout the year. Our generous paid sick and time off allow our employees to recharge so they can be at their best.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives are a key part of TCU’s core values. Fulfilling TCU’s mission to develop ethical leaders and critical thinkers in a global community depends on the university’s ability to attract and retain students, faculty and staff from diverse backgrounds that thrive in our community. A diverse and inclusive campus leads to innovation, broadened perspectives and understanding – values that are foundational aspects of higher education.
