THE World ranking

Located in an urban environment on a 300-acre tree-lined campus, Rice University seizes its advantageous position to pursue pathbreaking research and create innovative collaboration opportunities that contribute to the betterment of the world. It is ranked among the nation?s top 20 universities by U.S. News & World Report.

The University offers more than 50 undergraduate majors across six divisions of study, including architecture, engineering, humanities, music, natural sciences and social sciences. Additionally, minors, interdisciplinary and preprofessional programs complement university?s comprehensive curriculum, with multiple opportunities for research and collaboration.

Rice has a 6-to-1 undergraduate student-to-faculty ratio, and a residential college system, which supports students intellectually, emotionally and culturally through social events, intramural sports, student plays, lectures series, courses and student government. Students are randomly assigned to one of 11 coed colleges as freshmen and remain affiliated with that college throughout their time at Rice. Developing close-knit, diverse college communities is a strong campus tradition, which is why Rice is highly ranked for best quality of life and best value among private universities.

The University is in the heart of the museum district, next door to the world?s largest medical center, a short train ride to downtown and the nation?s second-largest theater district. Surrounding the campus is a world of opportunity and Rice students have free or discounted access to much of it.
