TCU launched a 360 virtual tour showcasing our spirited campus. The interfaith Robert Carr Chapel is recognizable not just for its architectural features – but also for being the tallest point on campus. Dedicated in 1954 and renovated and rededicated in 2017, the chapel hosts annual events like Carols by Candlelight and more than 100 weddings per year.
The chapel carillon you hear today was installed in 1984, replacing an earlier one provided by Robert Carr. You won’t need a watch anywhere on campus – the chapel bells play part of TCU’s alma mater and strike out a chime for each hour.
Couples have been walking down the aisle in the chapel since 1953, including countless Horned Frog sweethearts. The chapel is always in popular demand for weddings, many booking nearly two years in advance. SuperFrog has even been known to make appearances at weddings.
Students aren’t required to attend religious services on campus, but the chapel does host weekly worship services. TCU’s Office of Religious & Spiritual Life supports students from more than 60 faith traditions. One religion course is required for students, with course options that explore diverse religions and cultures.
