Updated Parking Details

Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music – December 8th, 9th, 15th, 16th and January 13th

The current parking lot for Shepherd School of Music (Alice Pratt Brown Hall) will be closed to prepare for construction site for a new music and opera building. The West Lot 2 has been designated for all Shepherd School of Music (Alice Pratt Brown Hall) events. The easiest way to access this lot is to enter campus from Entrance #18 off Rice Boulevard and then turn right at the parking gates to West Lot 2. For visitors with disabilities, accessible parking will be available at the south end of the lot.

A credit card will be required to pay for parking for West Lot 2. The fees for the use of these lots are $1 for each 30 minutes, with a $11 daily maximum.

Perform in LONDON this summer at the Royal Academy of Music’s Dukes Hall on July 15th 2019! REGISTRATION BEGINS 8 AM SATURDAY JANUARY 19th FOR VIVALDI STUDENTS ONLY (in person, at one of our two locations or via phone or email).
