Blue Book


Welcome to Duke.

The Blue Book outlines everything students need to do and know before they arrive at Duke in August. The book, which happens to be blue, includes deadlines for housing, registration, and immunizations as well as an overview of the academic advising model, dining plan options, pre-orientation opportunities, and so much more!

In May each student will receive their own Blue Book in the mail. A PDF version is now available below:

Additionally, New Student Programs launches a webinar series with accompanying videos called the Summer Transition Series to supplement the information in the Blue Book and help students make the needed decisions before their arrival in August. The 2019 Summer Transitions Series will begin airing in May.
