Rice is a 300-acre forested oasis in the heart of Houston's museum district - next door to the world’s largest medical center, a short train ride away from downtown and the nation’s second-largest theater district. Surrounding our campus is a world of opportunity and graduate students are encouraged to take advantage of all the cultural, culinary and sporting events Houston has to offer.
