Housing, Dining & Residence Life (HDRL)

Housing Communities

East Campus

First-year assignments are done on a random basis. Duke University is committed to encouraging our students to embrace new experiences, and our random assignment process allows students to be exposed to a myriad of cultures, viewpoints, and value systems. We make every effort to meet the preferences (roommate, room type, medical needs, etc.) for students returning all required materials by the deadline. However, we are unable to guarantee that a student’s preferences will be met.

West Campus

West campus is populated by Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors. West Campus is organized into seven residential quads, each managed by a live-in Residence Coordinator. Quads are also staffed by at least one Graduate Resident and 10-16 Resident Assistants. Edens and Few Quads are also home to a Faculty-in-Residence.
