Rice University

For Students and Young Professionals
Near the Houston Museum District is a pleasant neighborhood alongside Rice University, a great private research university. Many consider Rice to be one of the most beautiful campuses in the country, with lovely architecture and a park-like feel yet also an urban center. The surrounding area around the University bustles with things to do and see. Hermann Park is nearby, well- known for its grand landscape, garden, and golf course. There is even the Houston Zoo below the park that houses over 6000 animals.

Some museums featured nearby include the Houston Museum of Natural Science, The Museum of Fine Arts, and the Children's Museum of Houston. Rice University also has a great restaurant and bar scene for those who love the nightlife. Some restaurants include Miller's Cafe, Poblano's, and Third Coast Restaurant. Bars include Valhalla, Willy’s Pub, The Ginger Man, and Bar H Bar. The Rice University neighborhood is a great place to live for students and professionals alike - a quiet neighborhood close to it all.

Overall a good location. Quick drive to Rice campus, but there's also the option to walk depending on where you live. There are decent places to eat and hang out in Rice village, so it's nice being nearby. Things are generally safe, but there are a few spots where I've found myself regretting walking alone at quiet times.
