Recreation Center

Rice University is home to a state-of-the-art gym, and thus it comes as no surprise that the Gibbs Recreation Center has drawn quite a crowd, both within the Rice community and outside of it. For the non-Rice affiliated members who don't have the convenience of walking from their dorms or offices, the Parking Department offers Recreation Center parking in West Lot 3 with proof of gym membership. Rec members may contract for 6 months or a year, and have the option of purchasing full-time parking rights or taking advantage of the early-late bird special, which allows parking between the hours of 4:30-7:30am and 4:30-10pm. All Recreation Center parkers may park at anytime during regular gym hours on the weekends.
