At Rice University, there is no "what if" that cannot become "what is." We perform pathbreaking research, provide unsurpassed teaching and contribute to the betterment of our world. We work together to achieve what some think is unachievable. This is unconventional wisdom. This is Rice University.
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.
