My daughter earned her Ph.D. in Anthropology here (2015) so we have visited several times. The campus is beautiful, with great architecture and grounds that ere meticulously groomed. A great place to sit and ponder and/or to take a reflective walk.

It's always nice to be back on campus. We thought the university was beautiful back in the day, but they've added so many beautiful buildings, it's gratifying to see. The university put some serious thought into how to expand while enhancing the campus' beauty. Parking's pricey and a challenge to figure out, but it can be worth it if you... More

You can almost always find a wedding, quinceañera or engagement photography session going on and for good reason. Rice is unbelievably picturesque! With stunning oak trees (the campus is located on an arboretum) and so much greenery, it's easy to forget that you are in the middle of Houston! The campus is also home to beautiful Byzantine architecture and many... More

Rice is a small university that sits on a plot of land that is minutes to the Medical Center and Downtown Houston. My husband and I were married at the Rice Chapel 28 years ago August 20, 2015. We often go to the campus to just take a walk. It's relaxing and peaceful!

Valhalla Pub is the place where the worn out intellectuals go to recharge. This pub is in the middle of the campus with parking nearby. The fun thing to do is to go for a cold brew and just sit and listen to the conversations… not to eavesdrop! Soon you will find the friendliness comes knocking on your door. The... More

Truly one of the most beautiful parts of this city. The trees overhanging the streets make for a gorgeous setting. You get a feel for what Houston was like "back in the day". It's quiet, serene, lovely. But be careful where you park, even on weekends. It's a $30 ticket!

You can park on campus, but it i easier to park at the parkade at the Natural Science Museum and walk over. The signage on the campus is not great. However, if you walk to the square in the middle of the main buildings you can begin to get your bearings. There is a restaurant in the middle of the... More
