Parking for Evaluations
Parking for evaluations is available in the pay lot (credit card) West 1. From here you will have a short walk to the Gibbs Rec Center. A map is available here for the parking lot and pool location.
Registration Forms Age Group Swimmers
Registration is done through our online registration forms. An in-water evaluation has to be completed prior to starting our online registration.
Parking for RICE Aquatics Evaluations
Parking on the Rice campus is at a premium. You can pay as you go in the central parking garage across the street from the recreation center for $2 per 35 minutes or at the north visitor lot at entrance 20 off Rice Blvd. or at the west lot #1 in front of the Alice Pratt Brown Building. Parking at these spots is $1 per 35 minutes.
A better option is to buy an early bird/evening bird parking permit for $65 per semester or $115 for a year. Parking permits are available in the central garage offices across the street from the recreation center. Your name goes to the parking services as well and you may also present your Rice ID. There is a $25 proxy card purchase at the time of registration for a parking pass. Click here for a map of campus parking.
Aquatic Center Use:
Your Rice Aquatics membership gives you access to the pool and locker room facilities for our scheduled practices. The recreation center has limited numbers of community memberships available for use of the whole center at anytime. Our use of the aquatic center is a privilege. We ask that you keep your use of the facility limited to our practice times.
