The campus and nice and clean, although for me it doesn't really feel like a campus but more a medical facility which it basically is. Everything seemed to be really easy to get to for us ( chapel, admissions building, Cameron.) The Gardens are nice and Duke truly has a lot to be proud of.

Gorgeous Architecture, beautiful setting, and some of the most self important little brats you could ever have the displeasure of meeting. Don't get me wrong there is a SMALL percentage of genuinely nice kids and staff there, but they are in the minority. I even got the "don't you know who I am ? " treatment from their men's basketball... More

My 15yo daughter took part in the young writers summer camp conducted by Duke University so I had the time to explore the campus while visiting her. It is a nice campus, not pretentious. Wish my daughter can study here.

Duke has a lovely campus! Beautiful buildings, gardens, walkways, and the chapel is gorgeous! I discover new places on campus all the time and truly enjoy the area!

We are Duke basketball fans and have always wanted to see the Duke campus and Cameron Indoor Stadium. We found the visitor center and parking easily. Parking costs $2 per hour, so put enough in at the beginning for your visit, or keep running back to add to it as I did. We needed about four hours to see all... More

First visit here, we were amazed by the size and beauty of the campus. People were friendly and helped us to not get lost, or rather helped us get un-lost after we got lost, well not lost but misdirected. I am only sad, I am done university because I would try to enroll immediately. Loved it here.

Lucky to live in North Carolina and have one of the best hospitals in the world just hours away from your home. It appears everyone you meet there from doctors to nurses are some of the tops in their fields. Their resumes are impeccable and very impressive.

Make time for a stroll under the arches and try to count all of the students you see wearing Duke gear. Actually it would be much easier to count the ones who aren't wearing something that says Duke- very faithful students!!

Duke University has a special place in our heart as our oldest attended here. Be sure to see Cameron indoor Stadium and the Chapel. The Bryant Student Center has many new improvements. Walk through the Quad at night. Magical.

Gothic buildings every where will take u back in time. All sports facilities in middle of campus. Near downtown and 5-6 Miles north of Chapel Hill and UNC
