Change in Room Reservation Policy for Perkins and Bostock!

Starting August 1, 2019, the window for advanced reservations of group study and interview rooms in Perkins and Bostock Libraries will be shortened from eight weeks to four weeks.

This policy change does not apply to the Edge Project Rooms, which will continue to have a one-week advanced reservation window.

NOTE: Please respond to the confirmation email sent to your Duke email address within 1 hour. Otherwise, your reservation will be canceled.
