Experience Duke for Yourself

Duke cannot be fully captured through words or images. Maybe it’s the warmth and welcoming spirit you feel from both students and faculty. Maybe it’s the feeling of connection, collaboration, and creativity all around you. Whatever it is, from the minute you step on campus, you’ll feel what makes Duke special.

Tours and Immersions

TO SEE DUKE IS TO FEEL IT

In accordance with University policy, all on-campus recruitment activities hosted by Undergraduate Admissions, including information sessions, tours, and open houses, have been canceled through the end of 2020 to protect the health of our students, faculty, and staff, as well as our prospective visitors. We do not know when we might again offer in-person visit opportunities for prospective students. For this reason, we discourage you from planning a visit to campus, even on your own, at this time. When we have a reopening date, we will post it on our website and social media.
