Historical Note

The Office of Residential Life (currently named Residence Life and Housing Services) has long been committed to creating an active and meaningful residential life for its students. As such, it has continuously worked to review and improve the quality of residential life at Duke University. Historically, the it has addressed the effects of overcrowding, the selection process for residence halls, the separation of men on West Campus in both all-freshman and cross-sectional housing and women on East Campus in cross-sectional housing, freshman orientation, and administrative policies and guidelines.

A few of its more prominent programs include Duke University Experiential Living/Learning (D.U.E.L.L.), an alternative living opportunity based on the philosophy of Outward Bound; Duke's Vision Program, a program created in 1989 to introduce the diversity of the Duke Community and the University's commitment to multicultural diversity to entering freshman; and the formation of SHARE, an experimental living-learning project and Duke's first co-educational dorm on East Campus. In addition to these programs, there have been numerous committees appointed to review residential life and to make recommendations to improve the quality of residential living for students.
