Campus Virtual Tours

Can't take a campus tour today?

Take a campus virtual tour with us and experience our 300-acre campus arboretum and its urban surroundings. From labs and classrooms, to lounges and housing, these 360-degree photographs will put you in the center of it all. Additional campus virtual tours will allow you to venture out of the labs and classrooms to the beautiful campus to study and play, then go beyond the hedges and take the Houston virtual tour to get a glimpse of hot spots throughout Houston, many within walking distance — or a light rail train ride — from the university.

Simply pick your campus virtual tour and launch it in the mode of your choice. Select an image and then drag your way around for an unconventional view of people, activities and campus landmarks. Each slide also features a brief description and links that give you further insight into why Rice is such a spectacular place to study, work and play.
