Durham, NC - Duke Parking and Transportation Services is encouraging visitors and members of the Duke community to allow extra time to park and get around campus April 12 to 14 due to Reunions Weekend.

Duke will not close campus roads but will set aside parking for visitors, faculty, staff and Duke alumni. Parking attendants will be on campus to assist with flow of traffic and answer questions. Members of the public and Duke community are encouraged to review parking locations to plan accordingly over the weekend.

Special events and tours begin the morning of Friday, April 12.

The following Reunions Weekend events on Saturday, April 13, may cause additional congestion and limited parking:

  • 11 a.m. - Highlight Event: President Richard H. Brodhead in Page Auditorium.
  • 2 p.m. - "Celebrating the Past, Charing the Cuture" event in Page Auditorium to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first black students to integrate the university. Sen. William "Mo" Cowan '91 (D-Mass.) will give a keynote address on education.
  • 7 p.m. - The Reunions Gala will take place at the Grand Festival Tent near Wallace Wade Stadium (at the corner of Science Drive and Cameron Boulevard; across the street from the Washington Duke Inn and Golf Club).

For full Reunions Weekend parking information, review this schedule.
