Campus tours for groups of 40 or fewer visitors are offered at 10 a.m. Monday through Saturday by the Rice University Welcome Center. Because we rely on volunteer availability to conduct our tours, we regret that we cannot accommodate groups larger than 40 for these regularly scheduled tours. Available campus tour times do fill up quickly, so please plan your tour a minimum of two weeks in advance. School groups may also wish to take advantage of our free interactive classroom activities.
