Texas Tech University at Costa Rica (TTU-CR) cut the ribbon on the university’s first international campus. Located in Avenida Escazú, a high-end mixed use development on the west of San Jose, TTU-CR  offers a high quality U.S. education that is recognized worldwide, accessible and affordable for students in Costa Rica and in the Latin American Region.

Texas Tech University is located in Avenida Escazú. Torre 1. Piso 2. (San Jose). Visit website.

“We are very pleased to inaugurate Texas Tech University’s first international campus,” said Lawrence Schovanec, Texas Tech president. “This process has involved the diligence, hard work and resources of many dedicated people in Costa Rica and Lubbock, all of whom recognized an opportunity to enhance the educational opportunities for students in both countries.

“This would not be possible without the support of our Board of Regents and the Texas Tech University System, and the vision of supporters in Costa Rica and John Keith, executive president of Banco Promerica, in particular. This is a historic day for Texas Tech University that reflects the continual evolution of our university as an institution of world-class status and will provide greater access to the quality of a Texas Tech education for students in Costa Rica and Central America.”
