Housing, Dining & Residence Life (HDRL)

Graduate & Professional Students

Limited on-campus housing (see below) is available to full-time graduate students. Priority for housing assignment will be awarded to graduate students who arrive from abroad on student visa status AND it is their first time attending school outside of their home country. On-campus housing is not available for visiting scholars. Visiting scholars should contact the International House (ihouse@duke.edu or 919-684-3585) to explore housing options.

Most graduate students rent off-campus housing from private landlords in Durham. HDRL maintains an online database of available rentals to assist students in their searches.

Graduate Living on Campus

First-time, international students applying for the full academic year (August 18, 2014 through May 11, 2015) will be given priority in assignment. All students applying for less than the full academic year will be assigned on a space available basis after all full academic year students have been accommodated. International students do not receive priority when applying for less than the full academic year. Assignments are made in the order of receipt of completed applications.
