Before you swing by the Graduate School offices, please see our pandemic safety protocols for students, faculty, staff, and other visitors.
Note: The Graduate School has temporarily relocated to the Old Chemistry Building (415 Chapel Drive, Durham, NC 27708) while our offices undergo renovations that will last into 2020. Visitors to the school should go to room 313 of Old Chemistry (map).
The Graduate School welcomes prospective students and guests to visit us in our spacious home, located on a quiet corner of Campus Drive on Duke’s West Campus. Our street address is 2127 Campus Drive, Durham, NC 27708.
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 70 graduate departments and 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.
At present, The Graduate School does not offer campus tours; however, our graduate departments will sometimes arrange tours for prospective students upon request. For departmental contact information, please visit our Programs and Degrees page and select the appropriate program.
Maps are available at our front desk, and you can also visit maps.duke.edu. In addition to department-led tours, we recommend that you take a self-guided tour of East/West campus and surrounding academic quads. If your schedule permits, consider a visit to Sarah P. Duke Gardens (across the street from us) and lunch on Ninth Street.
