Graduate Student Housing

The Graduate Student Association has assembled additional information regarding housing in the area including neighborhoods convenient for Rice students and those that require an extended commute.

Campus Housing

Rice University offers housing to full-time, currently registered Rice University graduate students and graduate students who have been accepted and will begin their enrollment in fall 2017. Rice Graduate Housing has two apartment complexes located near campus - the Rice Graduate Apartments and the Rice Village Apartments. Partially furnished apartments are available in a variety of floor plans with internet and cable included. Each location also offers shuttle service to campus and local shopping.

For more information, please visit the  Graduate Housing website.  First-year doctoral students are guaranteed housing on-campus if they meet application deadlines.  All first-year students experience a very high placement rate in university housing.  

Off-Campus Housing

The Student Center maintains a database of available off-campus housing in the area.  The Office of International Students and Scholars also provides resources for all students to locate temporary and permanent housing.  

In February 2018, Jordin Metz, a graduate student at Rice university, coordinated a survey of graduate students to provide you their rental and commuting data so that you can get an idea of the cost of housing and transportation available in the area.  To view the map in a new window, click here.
