Beautiful college campus! Great for enjoying a scenic walk. Lots of trees, grass, and architecturally beautiful buildings. The trees by the library are especially nice. Rice Village nearby is a great area to look for hangouts, casual dining, and coffee.

Everyone has a mental vision of what a university campus looks like. Well, it looks like Rice. The original buildings, the quadrangle, the faithfulness to the Boston- and Princeton-influenced designers -- it all adds up to an iconic campus.

Friendly students strolling along the sidewalks guided us to buildings. In the heart of Houston's Medical Center area with easy access via cars. Not sure about bus service or the toy train. Houstonians refer to the limited service of the "toy train" because it is not up to big city standards. But back to Rice, it is a symbol of... More

The campus is lovely. There are beautiful trees that line the walks/streets and lovely buildings. The Glass Restaurant near the center of campus Brocksteins(not sure this is the correct spelling) is very good, serving a variety of food and drinks. Great value for money.

Beautiful campus. make sure you spend some time at the coffee shop behind the library. Very nice and quiet - there you forger that you are in the fourth largest city in the US. Great for children too as they can play in the open grass area.

A beautiful college campus is a rarityTexas. The Rice University campus stands alone in the state for its elegance and appeal. Most surprising is the standardization of style - an anomaly in a city marked by rapid construction and few city codes. The trees provide ample and much-needed shade. A lovely oasis in a sea of concrete and glass.
