QuadEx enhances and integrates the social, residential, and intellectual lives of Duke undergraduates.

With QuadEx, it’s not only where you live, but how you live.

QuadEx Details

  • QuadEx builds a residential and community link between East and West Campus, where two East Campus residence halls are paired and connected to a Quad on West Campus.
  • First-year students begin living in an East Campus residence hall and also automatically belong to their connected Quad community on West Campus.
  • These East-West connections support special programming, getting to know upperclass students, and feeling at home in both places.
  • All Quad programming and resources are available to all Quad members, regardless of where they live.
  • First-year students will continue to live on East Campus, but will have automatic membership into their affiliated Quad on West Campus
  • Sophomores will live in their linked West Campus Quad
  • Juniors will reside in their West Campus Quad or other upperclass housing on campus (Hollows, 300 Swift)
  • Seniors will live in their Quad, the Hollows, 300 Swift, or off campus
  • Students may not always live in their Quad, but they will always belong there
  • Quad Councils, residents, and Duke resources support student-driven, inclusive communities, traditions, and events
  • Signature programs like Faculty Fellows, Sophomore Spark, and Experiential Orientation promote intellectual exploration, career and academic readiness, belonging, and wellbeing.
