Hey guys, just found this site and its awesome. I'm pretty new to UE, been going into construction sites for afew years now, but not much more than that. Since moving to Lubbock for school I've become very interested in ugex hearing about the maintence tunnels under texas tech and rumors about a tunnel system under all of Lubbock, anyone heard anything about these? Entrance points, locations, size, etc? Thanks and i'm looking forward to learning more about UE!

Hey there. The steam tunnels under Tech do exist. Not sure how extensive they are, but being the biggest campus in the nation should make it interesting. Tunnels under the rest of the city is patently false, sorry to say. Lubbock doesn't even have a drainage system from what I understand.

There's a few buildings downtown, that have parking garages. I've found a few that have tunnels that go underground from the parking garages to the buildings. They generally have security cameras though.

The ones under TTU are pretty cool. If you have the know how you can also get on the roof of the library. I've also heard of people getting into the bell tower at the main building.

Bullshit!

If you don't like Texas weather, just wait 10 minutes! My SXSW vacation involved rain, rain amd a bit of rain. I climbed "Enchanted Rock" in the fucking rain and fog!

Funny thing is, Austin is 350 miles from Lubbock. That's like going to San Fran and thinking LA has similar weather for being in the same state. Your just mad cause your countries climate-o-meter is stuck on 'tits cold.'

Who did you see at SXSW?

Enchanted Rock is cool but nowhere near Lubbock. Entirely different climate.

Fredericksburg = Near trees, hills, water.

Lubbock = No trees, flat, dry.

Lubbock apparently has tunnels under Tech !

Ha-HA! I'm on topic!



Seriously though, I have no reason to want to go to Lubbock unless someone finds something cool there to explore. So, go to it TADAMZ.

There's stuff other than the TTU tunnels to explore. I've found a bunch.

What else is there around? Isn't there an abandoned hotel somewhere near "downtown"?
Havn't tried the tunnels yet btw, looking for another person to go with and i've been busy. But the grate is still unlocked so I may make an attempt soon.

Abandoned clubs near the 'Strand' sometimes. One closes down and is vacant for a bit.

The tunnels beneath Tech are pretty extensive. I first saw them via the basement of the Electrical Engineering building (beneath of north wing, which is open to the public). If you exit the main stairs or elevator, you will see the door ahead and to the right. It is a large storage room beneath the center of the archway. to the left is a rather dark hallway. I believe that there is another one to the right, but I didn't see it. This means that it will head under the engineering key towards the Civil Engineering building. The possible other one might head toward the practice field.

Anyway, standard tunnel. No door on the one I went into. Unfortunately, there were two maintenance men down the way working. Utility lights hanging down the length.

Door to that storage room from the open basement is supposed to be locked, but I saw it open or unlocked on many occasions.

Weeks hall has some unlocked windows, too when I was there a year ago. Mostly storage in there, but some stories of hauntings and suicide to make it fun.

I've lived here forever and I've never heard of the 'Strand'. Any hints on where this is?

The Strand is the strip of bars which is located across the dry "no liquor" line from Lubbock. I can't remember what the name of the little town is, but I'm sure you know where this area is. Its where all the college folks go to drink if they are off campus.

I have changed my personal exploring ethics code. From now on it will be: "Take only aimed shots, leave only hobo corpses." Copper scrappers, meth heads and homeless beware. The Jonsered cometh among you, bringing fear and dread.
