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

The Rice University campus has treasures throughout. It is a good idea to research the campus before going or take a tour. James Turrell's "Twilight Epiphany" Skyspace is next to the Shepherd School of Music and is viewed by many.

I quite liked the Rice university campus, I could imagine it would be a good place to study. I went there to attend a technical forum so was unable to explore the campus more but I liked what I saw.

I recently took my son to Rice for a campus tour. While the campus isn't that big, it offers just about anything you would expect from a prestigious university. Our tour guide who is a current student was very knowledgeable about the university, located in Rice Village close to many museums gives the students many options to see what Houston... More

We have visited many times this past year, as my daughter wants to go here in 2015-16. It is the most beautiful campus we have visited. The professors and students were so helpful and don't ignore you when you look lost. Lovely place to walk around.
