Explore Duke

We will have Duke Tour Guides available to give a few tours if you want to explore more of our beautiful campus! More information about times and where to meet will be posted soon. Feel free to also visit places on your own time though!

Notable attractions include the Nasher Art Museum, Duke Gardens, and the newly constructed Rubenstein Arts Center.

You can either walk to these places (~10 – 15 minutes) or you can download the Duke Transloc Rider app onto your phone and take a bus. The C1 runs most frequently, but you can also take the C2 or CCX.
