A big question on my mind as I prepared to move to Durham was where I was going to live. Of primary concern to me was safety, but price and proximity to school were also high on the list. There are a number of options in terms of where to live both on and off campus. The Duke housing website provides information for graduate students, including a listing of vacancies. The MMS incoming student website also includes additional information.
Though it’s limited, there is graduate student housing on campus. As with most campus housing it’s not fancy, but it’s functional. Apply here.
- Bus Route Accessible Locations: The Belmont, Poplar West, The Lofts, Trinity Commons, The Forest, Colonial Village
- Need a Car for Transportation: The Parc at University Tower (this is where I lived and I loved it; it’s affordable, safe and has great management) and West Village
This list is by no means exhaustive; but includes places where most of my classmates lived.
