Health & Safety: There's not too much to worry about on campus, but TCU is in the worst part of Fort Worth. As long as you're careful you don't need to worry too much. Don't walk alone

The combined efforts of the campus police and Froggie Five-0 make TCU students feel safe on campus. The patrol service, which includes foot, bike, automobile, and even Segway patrol officers, ensures the 24-hour protection of students and University property. TCU also offers free self-defense classes for added safety. Despite these security measures, every now and then crime still occurs, mostly in the form of burglary.

TCU has made several security updates over the past few years to try and combat what crime we have on campus. Emergency phones and lampposts have been added along with Froggie Five-0. The Rape Aggression Defense system (RAD) helps female students take charge of their overall well being and provides tips and techniques for avoiding rape and assault. TCU’s police department works overtime to ensure student safety by updating existing resources and creating new programs for the benefit of the students.
