IMPORTANT: The off campus lottery application is not live at this time. Please check back in October.

For the spring semester, HRL is offering an off-campus lottery for eligible juniors to request to be released from housing requirement.

Students interested in this off-campus housing lottery must submit an application by 11:59pm on Thursday, October 13. You will receive the decision regarding your request on October 18.

PLEASE NOTE: Simply submitting for the off-campus lottery is not a guaranteed release. HRL determines the specific number of students that we can release for the spring semester. Those students who submitted for the lottery are assigned a random number which then determines your eligibility for release. There may be an instance in which more students submit for the lottery than we will allow to be released. Therefore, do NOT make off-campus housing arrangements until after you have received your decision on October 18.

IMPORTANT: Decline Housing Request form for spring 2023 is not live at this time. Please check the Housing Portal around October

Students can apply to decline housing for the spring semester. Students could be eligible for one of the following reasons.

  • Class of 2023 or lower that wishes to live off campus
  • Met the six semester (3 year) live on campus requirement
  • Graduating December 2022
  • Visiting Scholar for the Fall semester only
  • Robertson Scholar
  • DKU student not attending for spring 2023
  • Studying away for the spring semester (including Duke Marine Lab)
  • Personal or medical leave of absence
  • Accommodation from Student Disability and Access Office to live off campus

Please submit a Decline housing request form through the housing portal

STUDYING AWAY FOR SPRING: Students who have applied, but not been officially enrolled in a study away program should complete the housing application and participate in the Spring assignment process. Once enrolled in a program, you will then need to decline housing. All students are verified via the Global Education Office.

RETURNING FROM FALL STUDY AWAY: Students who studied away for the fall 2022 semester who are required to live on campus (sophomores and juniors) are required to apply for spring housing regardless of interest in the off-campus lottery.

NOTE: Students who are returning from study away are not guaranteed a specific housing assignment, nor will they be able to swap with another student who is planning to study away and will need to apply for spring Housing.

Typically, during the spring of their sophomore year, all Robertson Scholars participate in a semester of Campus Switch where they live at the sister institution.

Students on campus for fall 2022 can approve a roommate request from a student applying for spring housing.

We will do our best to meet preferred roommate requests, but housing options are limited and preferred roommate requests may not be able to be met.

If you are on campus for fall of 2022, you can also indicate on the Roommate Request form that you give permission to be reassigned to live with your preferred roommate.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are reassigned, you will be responsible for fully moving out of your fall assignment prior to leaving for winter break and storing your items off campus. We will not provide storage for you. You will then move into your new spring assignment on or after January 7th.

We have a limited number of spaces in our on-campus two-bedroom apartments at 301 Swift apartments for graduate and professional students. Spring housing assignments will be made based on date of application submission and student visa status. Students must be fully admitted in order to apply through the housing portal.

Assignment priority will be given to graduate or professional students on student visa status.

Wednesday, November 30 - GPS application opens. Application will stay open until spaces are filled.

If you are the member of either a Selective Living Group or a Learning Living Group, you will still need to apply for spring housing. Once we receive roster information from the group directly, we will use that to assist in making your assignment based on availability in that area. 

PLEASE NOTE: We will do our best to assign you within your SLG/LLC, but it is NOT a guarantee as housing options are limited.

Duke University is not liable for damage or loss of personal property kept in the resident’s assigned space or in other areas of University housing. Because the University does not provide property insurance, residents are encouraged to secure their own personal property insurance.

All Duke students should consider purchasing renters insurance to protect their personal property in the event that it is damaged, destroyed or stolen. Even if a student is a dependent under his or her parent's insurance, the student's personal property, may not be covered.

Talk with your parents. They should check their policy or contact their insurance agent to see what coverage you have and if renters insurance is right for you while away at school.

Students returning to Duke after a separation of any kind should work with the Time Away Office to manage their return process. You may contact housing assignments regarding your residency status while your Time Away Return Form is under review. 

  • Students without a housing assignment will be required to apply and are assigned once approved for return.
  • Students with a housing assignment, who take time-off from the University, can decline housing and apply once approved for return.

Students returning to Duke after a leave of absence of any kind remain subject to the Board of Trustees policy requiring all Duke undergraduate students to live in university housing for three academic years (Six semesters) as a Duke student. Resident students who take a leave of absence for personal reasons may return as residents provided they follow the HRL procedures and deadlines. Duke guarantees housing to all of its full-time undergraduate students, save those who are not eligible due to disciplinary sanctions. 

You may contact housing regarding your residency while your return application is under review. Students without a housing assignment will be required to apply and will be assigned once they have been approved for return. Students with a housing assignment, who are separated from the University, will have their housing cancelled and will be required to reapply once approved for return.

Students returning to Duke from a leave of absence (and who are subject to the residency requirement noted above) who fail to request housing will receive an assignment and be financially responsible for the term of the assignment.

Housing and Residence Life (HRL) works in conjunction with the Student Disability Access Office (SDAO) to ensure consistency in evaluating special housing accommodation requests. The Student Disability and Access Office reviews requests and shares approved student accommodations with HRL. Students with approved accommodations will be offered priority for placement in an available space that meets their accommodations.

Students who wish to be considered for reasonable accommodations must submit current documentation (i.e., medical/educational/diagnostic reports) from licensed physicians, psychologists, or other qualified professionals as well as supporting historical records and materials. For the purpose of receiving consideration for reasonable accommodations at Duke University, an individual must have an impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.

Information regarding the process to request an accommodation can be found on the Student Disability and Access Office website or at 919-668-1267
