Getting to TCU

TCU is located four miles southwest of downtown Fort Worth on University Drive.

From the DFW Airport by train and bus: From DFW Centreport take the Trinity Railway Express to the Intermodal Transit Center in downtown Fort Worth. Take the #7 (University) bus to TCU. The Mary Couts Burnett Library is on the left (east) side of University Drive, midway between West Cantey Street (the north entrance to the campus) and Berry Street, marked by a large brown sign.

From the DFW Airport by car: Depart from the south airport exit. Take 360 South to Arlington. From 360 take Interstate-30 West to Fort Worth. Drive through downtown Fort Worth and exit University Drive South. TCU is about 2 miles south of I-30.

From the north or south by car: Take I-35W to I-30 West. Drive west through downtown and exit University Drive South. TCU is about 2 miles south of I-30.

From the west or east by car: Take I-30 and exit University Drive South. The campus is about 2 miles south of I-30.

Drive south on University Drive, then turn left (east) at the light on West Berry Street. Travel four blocks on Berry, then turn left on Lubbock Avenue. The TCU Police building will be on your right. Visitors driving to the TCU Library need to obtain a visitor's parking permit from the TCU Police Department.

Walking and riding

It is a short walk to the library from Visitor Parking on Lubbock Avenue. The campus also offers a shuttle bus system for traveling the campus from various points. The East Campus TRAC shuttle (PDF) passes the corner of West Lowden Street and Greene Avenue.
