Virtual Campus Tour

Virtual 360° Tour

We invite you to join us at Rice on a virtual, 360° campus tour, narrated by the Dean of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, Seiichi Matsuda! While COVID-19 continues to keep us apart, we hope you enjoy this look around Rice University's campus. (If you would like to interact more with Rice, click here to register for a Coffee Chat with our Graduate Student Ambassadors!)

This video was shot in a safe and socially-distanced manner during the pandemic, and in collaboration with volunteers at the Digital Media Commons (DMC) at Fondren Library. While we regret not being able to host our admitted students on the Rice campus this year, we are grateful for the DMC's thoughtful and careful work during this time to bring Rice to our incoming fall class.
