Summer 2021 Housing

Summer Session students may live on campus during the summer of 2021. All housing will be single bedrooms so there will only be one rate:  $50.45/day. 

Baseline Covid testing of all participants and staff will be required as part of the check-in/move-in process and surveillance testing will continue throughout the summer. 

For further information and a housing application, visit the Residence Life and Housing Services web site  (after March 1) or contact Housing Assignments: by phone, 919/684-4304; or email housing@studentaffairs.duke.edu

Students who apply for campus housing but experience a change of plans should contact the Housing Office to cancel their housing and dining application. Dropping your course registrations does not cancel your housing and dining. Housing and dining fees are separate from tuition and will appear on your bill separately.

Summer 2021 Dining 

*For summer 2021, every person with a bed on campus must have a meal plan* 

This is a significant change from summers prior. However, the University is trying to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 through limiting off campus interactions. A required meal plan encourages more dining on campus. 

Please note that indoor dining and dining capacities for summer will be based on current local, state, and University guidelines. There will be outdoor seating throughout the campus for participants to utilize.
