2019-2020 Academic Year Housing Updates

A number of shifts are coming to Duke Housing beginning in fall 2019, as Central Campus closes, other buildings open or re-open, and new housing options become available for both undergraduate and graduate students.

Central Campus will close

At the conclusion of the spring 2019 semester, Central Campus apartment buildings, including 301 Swift, will be decommissioned for use as undergraduate housing. Houses currently located on Central Campus will move to 300 Swift or West Campus. Details about these moves will be shared via email on November 15 and November 20.

Halls (re)open on West and East Campuses

Also new for fall 2019, Craven residence hall will reopen on West Campus. In addition to this renovated residence hall, newly built residence hall, The Hollows, will open in fall 2019. This 703-bed residence hall, made up of two connected buildings, will offer suite-style living for upperclass students. Each suite will feature a kitchen, common area, two full bathrooms, and single and double room options, similar to other upperclass residence halls on West Campus. Suites will range in size from two to seven students.

On East Campus, Southgate hall will reopen in fall of 2019. It was closed for the 2018-2019 academic year while it was under renovation. This hall will feature full size beds.

Graduate and professional student housing

Housing and Residence Life will offer on-campus housing for Graduate and Professional Students during the 2019-2020 academic year in 301 Swift. Assignment priority will be given to graduate or professional students on student visa status who are attending school outside of their home country for the first time.
