TCU’s Spring Commencement is scheduled for May 11 in the Ed & Rae Schollmaier Arena, with the first ceremony at 9 a.m., the second at 1 p.m. and the third at 5 p.m. Visit for additional information.

A reception for all graduates and their families is planned the Friday before Commencement in the Campus Commons (interior part of campus) from 6:30-8:30 p.m., which will culminate with a small fireworks presentation.

Student move-out

All students living on campus must move out of their living areas within 24 hours of their last final exam today through May 11.

There will be increased traffic on campus, but we do not anticipate overflow in neighborhoods. Should you have any questions, please contact TCU Police at 817-257-7777.

Parking pivot

The 2019 Charles Schwab Challenge, this year’s PGA golf tournament to be held at Colonial Country Club May 20-26, will use several of TCU’s parking lots for its visitor parking.

Beginning May 21, TCU will close lots 2, 3, 4, 5 and 13, as well as the Worth Hills Parking Garage, for exclusive use by the golf tournament. Signs will be posted at each parking lot to reiterate this temporary adjustment.

Should you have any questions, please contact TCU Police at 817-257-7777.

Capital projects becoming a reality

This summer, several capital projects approved by the Board of Trustees will become a reality.

In June, the new Fine Arts Building, located east of the J.M. Moudy Visual Arts and Communication Building on West Cantey Street, will open, bringing together for the first time Interior Design & Fashion Merchandising as well as Graphic Design, currently located in multiple buildings across campus.

Also, the new Neeley School of Business will have classrooms ready for use this fall—a few months earlier than expected, and two new residence halls in Worth Hills will open their doors to students in August.
