Visit The Graduate School

Graduate School interior, with a pretty chandelier over an antique stairwellThe Graduate School welcomes prospective students and guests to visit us in our offices, located on a quiet corner of Campus Drive on Duke’s West Campus. Our street address is 2127 Campus Drive, Durham, NC 27708 (map).

Built in 1931 for the family of Duke administrator Robert L. Flowers, our historic stone building later housed University Development offices before The Graduate School’s move in 2009. Our central location provides services for more than 80 graduate programs.

We encourage you to inquire about the admissions process, funding opportunities, and graduate family assistance during your visit. For specific department requirements or course offerings, we will direct you to the appropriate departmental staff for further assistance.
