Interesting campus with huge oak trees lining the streets
Apr 2021
Most of the buildings in this campus have a red brick facade, but architecturally they are all look unique and some are quite imposing looking, like the Lovette Hall. The eastern end of the campus where Lovette Hall is located is more interesting where huge oak trees lined the side streets. The western end is dominated by the stadium and the drab parking lot. If you are interested in architecture, it is worth taking a stroll through the campus.

I wish it was opened but it was nice to look at on the outside. I am applying here for graduate school.

peaceful to walk around at night, stunning oak alleys
Jun 2020
Did not take a tour of any kind merely wandered around the campus several nights while staying in Houston (also adjacent to Hermann Park so you can make a decent loop of the whole thing and get in a couple miles walking exercise. Covid quiet, almost deserted, but you never feel unsafe (not that I would, but I'd imagine a woman walking alone would feel the same way). The oak alleys alone are something to see via lamplight and the architecture is pretty - vaguely Moorish, with mostly sympathetic modern additions. Peaceful, contemplative..... Parking in the Hermann lot is free and there;s street parking in adjacent areas (evening).

Stunning campus

Directed a workshop on campus. Having been doing this for 10 years. I definitely recommend the school for quality of faculty and curriculum. While there check out the cute French café!

Brief evening tour waiting for Owls game
Jan 2020
We parked up near the sports stadium and did a short walk of this amazingly structured and beautiful campus before catching an Owls game. There is an interesting light exhibit to see at dusk where you can sit and watch the sky under a changing colour light canopy. Impressive to see new buildings going up replicating the original style I'd imagine at some great expense but keeping a coherence to this very tranquil spot in the center of Houston

Ivy League style campus in Houston
Nov 2019
Visiting this campus is a must do while in Houston. A stroll around the grounds will make you feel wiser, like their mascot, the Owl. Rice is consistently ranked in the top 20 universities in the USA and is the top academic university in Texas. There is an outer ring walkway that surrounds the entire campus, so that is a great place to start your tour. After that you can walk all over the inner campus and enjoy the gothic buildings and giant trees. Depending on the season, there are plenty of athletic events to enjoy as well. There is a cool bar on campus and many cafes in the student union area. Give yourself a few hours for this self walking tour and enjoy the gorgeous campus in the heart of the great city of Houston.

The campus is near the hospital and museum districts. Many hiking and running trails are available. A great school as well. Nearby quaint shops and eateries abound. Wonderful concerts too, as well as sports.
