Only saw the outside of the building. It seemed like a nice, cozy place to live. [View Full Report]

The tour doesnt let you see the inside of a dorm. As a matter of fact the freshman dorms are kind of separated from the rest of the campus. They aren't nearly as attractive as the rest of the ca [View Full Report]

Most of the dorms are old and without air-conditioning. The new ones are nice but are more expensive. [View Full Report]

Never got to see the inside. But they looked really nice on the outside except for the two older buildings. But those 2 buildings were the only two that didn't make me say "Wow! How pretty.& [View Full Report]

They looked like...gasp...college dorms. They were plain and standard. Although, my tour guide said there were big, flat screen TV's in some. Also, quite a few w/o internet and/or AC. [View Full Report]

We weren't allowed inside a dorm for reasons of security. [View Full Report]

The dorms were so-so. Not terrible, but not great either. Going to Duke costs about 50k yet their dorms are really not great at all. Most of them have no air-condition. [View Full Report]

Even though I didn't have the opportunity to go inside the dorms, the outside of the dorms were very nice. Their main problem is that most of them don't have AC, a problem for me during a NC [View Full Report]

Not as good as I was hoping, but that could because I stayed in a selective housing dorm. [View Full Report]

Tour guide showed us her room - it was on the small side, but her first pick (dorms are assigned via a lottery system, and she got 17th draw). However, only 3/~17 freshman dorms are air-conditioned! [View Full Report]

Jarvis (my host's dorm): OK- kind of small rooms, though Bell Tower: hotel-like, it even had a relaxation room Randolph: newer than Jarvis, also nice Epworth: older, bigger rooms than Jarvis [View Full Report]

The dorms are okay...they all seemed to have their tradeoffs. You either get a big room with no ac, or a prison cell-sized room with ac. [View Full Report]

Some of the West Campus dorms are older, and in the process of being renovated, but bonus points for the fact that students essentially live in a cast [View Full Report]
