Before you arrive on campus:
If you have not already done so, make your hotel reservations now.
A listing of local hotels is provided or you can visit the
Durham Convention and Visitors Bureau.
It is the students’ responsibility to order apparel, order Commencement
announcements, and pick up tickets for the Baccalaureate Service. Please
communicate with your student about taking care of these duties here on campus.
Please remember to bring your umbrella (just in case!) and comfortable shoes.
Some of the events do require walking distance.
There are many optional activities offered over Commencement Weekend and
we encourage you to check out the other Things to Do while on campus.
Duke University encourages individuals with disabilities to participate in its
Commencement activities. If you anticipate needing reasonable accommodations
beyond what is described on the Disability Management System website, or have
questions about the physical access provided, please contact the Disability Management
System at 919-684-8247 in advance of your attendance.
