Located on a 300-acre tree-lined campus in Houston, Rice University is consistently ranked among the nation's top 20 universities by U.S. News & World Report. Rice's undergraduate student-to-faculty ratio is approximately 6-to-1. Its residential college system builds close-knit communities and lifelong friendships, just one reason why Rice is highly ranked for best quality of life by the Princeton Review and for best value among private universities by Kiplinger's Personal Finance.
