At Rice, we believe that while you’re busy preparing for life, you should take some time to live it. You won’t need our happiest students to tell you our philosophy works. You’ll feel it the minute you step on campus.

As an urban campus, you could expect Rice to be busy, loud and crowded - but you'd be wrong. Behind our hedges Rice has a beautiful campus full of shade, seclusion and cozy study corners. Venture beyond and you'll find everything a big city has to offer - the best of both worlds.

Rather than exclusive clubs or membership forms, as an Owl you'll join a residential college. These colleges are much more than where you eat and sleep - they are your first friends at Rice, your home away from home.
