Housing & Residence Life

Summer 2022 Housing

Duke offers two distinct summer options for undergraduate students: Duke Summer Session and Duke Summer Experiences. Each program offers unique opportunities for undergraduate students. On-campus housing is available for both options.

Housing and Residence Life
On-campus housing is available for students enrolled in Summer Session courses. Summer school housing will be in Edens Quad and students are required to have a meal plan. Summer school enrollment is required.

Conference & Event Services
Students who are involved in a local co-curricular program or working in Durham as a research assistant, intern, etc. can apply to live on campus this summer through Conference and Event Services (CES). CES will house students in 300 Swift. Students are responsible for housing and a meal plan. The dates for CES housing are May 22 - July 31. Please reach out to summer-ces@duke.edu to receive the application or ask any other questions. 

Duke Summer Session will return to primarily in-person instruction for summer 2022. There will also be a number of online course opportunities. Course offerings include the required and traditional as well as the novel and innovative. 

Summer Session gives current undergraduates and incoming transfer students a way to catch up on their courses, focus on more difficult classes, or jump ahead in their studies so they can engage in other programs like Study Abroad. The program is also available for graduating Duke seniors, Duke alumni and Duke employees who want to continue their education.

Registration for Duke Students opens in DukeHub on Monday, February 14.

The Office of Undergraduate Education’s Division of Experiential Education is pleased to announce the launch of Duke Summer Experiences. Duke Summer Experiences is a Duke-wide project with three main goals:

  • Aggregating all summer undergraduate opportunities in one place
    The Duke Summer Experience database is easily searchable and directs users back to the individual program websites for more details.
  • Innovating ways to streamline the application experience
    Duke Summer Experience is testing a new centralized application system with the intent to make it easier for students to apply to multiple opportunities reducing application fatigue.
  • Creating a community of practice for program and opportunity administrators
    Duke Summer Experiences seeks to build a community of practice where administrators can share best practices, resources, and lessons learned.

Housing and Residence Life
On-campus housing is also available for students enrolled in Summer Session courses. For further summer information and a housing application, visit the Housing and Residence Life website or contact Housing Assignments: by email housing@duke.edu or phone, 919-684-4304.
