We were extremely impressed with Rice University. The architecture is exquisite, the faculty and staff very welcoming and professional, the ground and buildings immaculate, and the students friendly and highly motivated. It truly couldn't have been a better experience.

I took my friend to this place when she was in town for visiting. It's a big campus. I parked my car at a parking garage (I believe it was $3 per hour) near the campus. The buildings of this university are very pretty. It's a good place for pictures. I recommend this place if you are around Houston.

This campus is safe and has outstanding academics. Rated one of the top 10 Universities in the States. Their stadium actually hosted the 1974 Super Bowl.

Rice University's campus in Houston is directly adjacent to the Texas Medical Center, the world's largest medical center, and Rice Village, a cute, safe, collection of shops, restaurants, boutiques and stores where you can find just about anything. The campus itself if a beautiful array of old and new buildings, mostly brick, that are spread out over a fairly large... More

Nothing much to report here - this seemed like an average city campus. It was nice though to see plenty of vegetation and trees. Overall, I thought it was a little underwhelming from a visual aspect.

Took my grandson on a tour and what beautiful tree-lined streets, classic buildings and students everywhere helping other students unload their belongings. My grandson commented on the great college spirit everyone demonstrated. This is on top of his list for the time being at least. We haven't seen them all.
