Parking & Directions - UPDATED 4/27

This year’s event will be held at the Anderson-Clarke Center at Rice University, home to the Glasscock School of Continuing Studies. The closest paid* parking lot is West Lot 5. Entrance #8 at the intersection of University Boulevard and Stockton Drive provides the easiest access to West Lot 5. Other paid* parking options include: Greenbriar Lot (economical choice, $3 per each exit), Moody Lot, West Lot 2, or Central Garage underneath McNair Hall.

*The Parking Machines at the entrance gates will instruct the driver to insert a credit card (American Express, VISA, MasterCard, or Discover). When the gate opens and the vehicle enters, the computer's "parking meter" begins. Upon leaving, the visitor drives to the exit gate and inserts the same credit card. It is very important to use the same credit card used at entry while exiting, otherwise, the computer will not recognize the card. The gate will open within a few seconds, at which time the meter stops. The computer calculates the time, checks for fee approval, and will automatically bill the credit card.

Rice's Mask Policy - UPDATED 4/27

Rice's policy is to require masks in classroom settings of 25 or more and to encourage mask wearing when it seems appropriate. We will have masks available, but at a limited quantity. We encourage participants to bring their own mask to wear at their discretion. 

Reception & Sponsors

Thanks again to our sponsors for supporting our reception on Thursday evening, April 28 from 5-6:30 p.m. We will have light bites and spirits to celebrate our 10th SSPEED Conference and give our attendees the opportunity to connect with others across the industry.
