Even if cannot afford to go to school there it is worth your time to check out the campus. Especially if you have college level kids getting ready to go to college.

The campus layout is perfect for a walking tour. Highlights are the athletic fields, including Cameron Indoor Stadium, the residential quads and the Duke Chapel.

The campus was beautiful, even more than I ever expected. Buildings, architecture, everything. I see why all my duke friends love it so much!

I ran all over the Duke campus while my son played soccer there. The buildings are beautiful. Duke is nestled in the woods and couldn’t be prettier. The Cathedral is stunning. There is a lot of construction going on all over the campus. We arrived...More

Visited campus with my son and it was more than we expected. I expected campus to be old looking, but it's quite beautiful. The architecture is amazing. Brick and glass was such an interesting combination. So much more than expected. Beautiful campus. Definitely worth visiting...More

Visit Duke.edu to find to vast variety of places to go as well as things to see and hear on this sprawling campus. Student food options are a grand bargain and reasonable pricing. Do remember that this is a place for learning.

Duke is a beautiful campus, and always growing. I taught there part time at the Fuqua School of Business for 12 years, and we lived within walking distance of the West Campus for 25 years. Enjoy the grounds, the beautiful Chapel, the musical and theater...More

My wife has been a Duke mens basketball fan for years so was thrilled to finally visit this campus. We thoroughly enjoyed the Cameron arena and actually got to walk on the court. We could imagine the Cameron Crazies cheering on Duke players.

Nice campus. Buildings are beautiful. Pretty quiet during break. Walked the gardens and visited the chapel. Stayed at the Inn on campus which is very nice as well.

I would try and specify this when making arrangements for your official tour. If you have a potential student for the team, I am sure they will want him to meet the coaches and see the stadium. We did not see it while... More
