Housing

Attendees learned more about housing options, learning that on-campus housing is for graduate students is VERY limited.  Most MEM and MEng students live off-campus, and the information below will help you decide on your best option.  

Duke's Community Housing office has conducted surveys of students living in various complexes in the area.  The survey lists pricing, contact information, and options. Students then rank complexes based on condition, property management, noise, and safety, and each complex's crime statistics are listed as well. You can also see the student breakdown for each complex (would you rather live with a lot of undergrads, or other graduate and professional students?).  View search results for this information here, but note that the most recent survey is from 2009, so be sure to check pricing.

Information Packets

Attendees received a packet of information as well, including
