We just love the campus and stayed close by for ease of walking to the ballgame. Very pedestrian friendly!

There is not much more to say about Duke, besides it is incredibly beautiful. Walking about campus felt like you were walking around a gorgeous mansion. The reason we traveled there was to tour the Physical Therapy area of campus, which was all so gorgeous and the staff was SO friendly. The helpfulness of the staff was something we did... More

Visited the campus because I had a few hours to kill and because well I am a doctoral student so I always wanted to visit this campus having heard awesome things about it. The day I visited, it was raining like anything and it was below freezing... and yet I fell in love with this beautiful campus

My children dubbed Duke "Hogwarts" because of its beautiful Gothic architecture, with Duke Chapel, an imposing landmark on West campus. When visiting, make sure to check out the Duke Chapel and Sarah Duke Gardens. Stop in the student union for some casual dining and to pick up Blue Devils merchandise, Duke students are so fortunate to have this gorgeous place... More

Spent time at Wallace Wade Stadium and Cameron Indoor Stadium. The people were all friendly, kind and helpful. Well worth the visit. It is a must!

Duke is a beautiful campus with wonderful architecture and gardens. There is a buzz around campus all the time and a wonderful vibe. Stroll around campus and friendly students can point you in the right direction to all the sites. Park where you can and walk, we tried to drive closer to some of the sights and there simply is...

Great tradition, well maintained buildings, parking is easy, many good food options. Conference center with hotel and a second hotel across the street make it very convenient to visit.

If you like college basketball, there is no better venue in America than Cameron Indoor Stadium on the Duke University campus. There is not a bad seat in the house, the atmosphere is electric, and the place oozes history and success. This is truly a "bucket-list" item for any college basketball fan.

We decided to take a walk around the university to kill some time and it was well worth it. Finding a good parking spot for doing this was the biggest challenge, and we ended up parking a bit off campus at the Duke University hospital. It was the cheapest and convenient option ($3 bucks for a couple of hours). The... More
