Visit Campus

A campus visit is the perfect way to get a sense for our culture, surroundings, and the wealth of opportunities available at the Nicholas School. We host an annual Visitation Day for prospective students and we are happy to arrange individual visits on other days throughout the year. We hope to see you soon!


This year, Prospective Student Visitation Day will be held on Friday, October 27, 2017.  We encourage prospective students to attend. It's a great way to learn more about the Nicholas School and Duke University communities. Students will also have an opportunity to interact with Nicholas School faculty, staff, and students.  Watch for news coming soon on how to register!


We are happy to arrange individual visits for those who cannot attend our Visitation Day. You’ll have an opportunity to see our facilities, meet with admissions staff, visit classes, and meet faculty and current students (if school is in session).

When to Visit

Visits are offered on Mondays and Wednesdays only. We recommend visiting when school is in session (consult the Academic Calendar) so you can have the chance to attend classes and meet faculty and students. However, admissions officers are available to meet with prospective students year-round if you can’t make it during the school year.

How to Schedule Your Visit

Individual visits must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. Please submit a request by contacting us at For opportunities to meet admissions staff on the road this fall, when we might be in your neck of the woods, click here to view the travel/recruitment schedule.


We hope you’ll make the most of your visit by exploring Duke, Durham, and our surrounding areas. Here are some resources to help you get started.
