Student Study Space

Student study spaces and rooms on all campuses are open at 100% occupancy level. Unless a space otherwise prohibits food and drink, students will be allowed to eat on campus. Sanitation wipes will be made available to wipe surfaces before and after use. 


Fall 2021

  • As of August 1, 2021, we have returned to 100% classroom occupancy on our campuses.
  • Schools will offer instruction using methodologies appropriate for each academic program and in accordance with approved delivery methods, such as (1) face-to-face, on campus instruction; (2)  interactive video technology (e.g., TechLink, Zoom); and/or (3) online instruction.
  • Experiential learning activities (e.g., clinical rotations, community based experiences) for students will continue in collaboration with participating sites, which often have site-specific requirements beyond TTUHSC requirements.
  • Students will participate in research activities as instructed by laboratory personnel.
  • All students, faculty, and staff are strongly encouraged to wear facial coverings on campus.
  • Students should contact their program leaders with any additional questions about specific academic programs. 
Updates will continue to be announced and posted on this page.
