Athletic Facilities Use Policy

Horned Frog Statue

The use of TCU athletic facilities must be coordinated through the facility's coordinator and Conference Services. On-campus use of athletic department facilities by campus groups may contact the athletic department directly. Off-campus groups must contact Conference Services. The use of any athletic facility must not in anyway conflict with any workout or contest by any TCU team. The condition of the facility must be left as found.

It is the desire of the Athletic Department that no concert or dance be permitted in any facilities. No fork lifts or other motorized equipment will be used on the Ed & Rae Schollmaier Arena floor. All field (grass) equipment and or stages must first be approved by the department and the University Agronomist.

Conference Services' general policy regarding use of any campus facility:

  • The event sponsor must be (1) official TCU group, (2) TCU-sponsored group event, (3) off-campus youth educational group, (4) off-campus non-profit community educational group.
  • Sponsor must comply with University's insurance requirements, abide by University regulations, and pay appropriate fees communicated by Conference Services. The University policies shall be followed in the event of inclement weather. The University has a campus-wide lightning detection system that shall be considered the standard for all patrons, teams, coaches, and officials.
  • The University shall retain the right for cancellation of games and/or practices on fields or courts due to scheduling or field conditions. Every effort will be made to accommodate our guests but in the event of rescheduled games or post season play, schedules may have to be modified with minimal notification. Field conditions that are considered detrimental to intercollegiate play will be determined by the Athletic Administration and Intercollegiate Sport Coaches.

All set-up and equipment needs require written approval from Conference Services.

Additional staffing (e.g., security, parking attendants, etc.) requirements by sponsor may be required per Conference Services. Security requirements are to be determined by the TCU Police Department.
