COVID Events Policy:
Rice events and gatherings will be limited indoors to 50 or the COVID occupancy (in accordance with modified space capacities including all attendees, staff and vendors). There are no limits on outdoor events. This policy applies to Rice events on and off campus until further notice.
To help with contact tracing, events will be required to capture RSVP's for all events and keep the records until the end of the semester. There are several RSVP tools available to the Rice community. More information on how to access these and other tools is located in the Event Planner Guidance.
