Lovely campus, private university and well run. Parking and street signs are an issue. Take your time if you are unfamiliar with the area.

If you're not a student (or alum) & you're not attending a game or event, there's not much for you to do. It's a neat campus & worth a gander, but don't expect too much.

The campus is a calm, green oasis in the midst of a bustling city. There are several very cool art installations scattered about the campus. Lots of outdoor seating by the buildings and cafes. The large courtyard by the statue of the founder reminds me of being in the garden of an Italian palazzo (possibly due to the trees). Convenient to public transportation.

The campus of Rice is a wonderful green space in the midst of one of America's most concrete using cities. There are plenty of routes to jog, many trees providing shade, and uncommonly relaxed drivers who may yield to let you cross a street.
