Housing & Residence Life

Graduate & Professional Students

Significant enhancements to the housing options at Duke will be taking place in the near future. The university expects to break ground on a new East Campus residence hall late this summer and following approval from the Board of Trustees, a new residence hall is planned for West Campus. This will be followed by additional developments on campus that will ultimately replace the more than 1,000 beds in Duke’s Central Campus.

Some current Central Campus housing facilities have become prohibitively expensive to update and will be retired this summer.  About 160 students currently living there will be moved to other locations on Central Campus or to university-owned apartments on Swift Avenue.  Additional changes can be expected as the new housing plan proceeds.

More information about the changes to on campus housing can be found at Duke Today.

These new building initiatives will preclude graduate and professional students from living on campus. Durham has many off campus housing options available to graduate and professional students. You can begin your search using the nearDuke off campus housing website. Some of the off campus living options that are in close proximity to campus include:

Many graduate and professional schools offer information about where their students live via their websites. Some of the schools are listed below:
