Hey peeps!

Late admit here (admitted Friday). Still waiting on scholly info but even a little bit of money would probably have me attending Duke!

Just wanted to get some feedback on rent in Durham - what's everyone looking at, what's a reasonable price to pay, etc. Anything possible can help!

Sorry if this has already been discussed earlier in the thread.

Personally looking to split a house with my SO, average price for 2 bedroom is about $1300 so I'm looking at 650/month.

I know in apartments depending on how many roommates you're ok with rent can range from $500 (4 roomates) to 1K for a solo.

I've been trying to stay out of this thread, but wanted to offer some suggestions (if you haven't seen them in other Duke threads). Make sure you are using all of the resources available to you. SO and I were looking at townhouses and houses on hotpads/zillow. They were okay, but nothing really popped out at us. We ended up finding the perfect place for us ($1100, 2bed/1bath, 1.5mi commute from door to door) on a site recommended by some friends at Duke who also found their place on it: offcampushousing.duke.edu. I think you can only access it when you set up your Duke email, but definitely take advantage of that and DukeList (on your my.duke.edu) when you get your login stuff. Hotpads/Zillow are good, but some local folks don't like to advertise on sites like that, so you'll find some gems on the local sites.

So once we put down a deposit are we like, done?

I have set up my email and everything but I'm curious how things like parking permits and insurance works. Is that all at orientation or will we get info in the summer (or am I totally missing something?)

I'm not sure if I have any action items still

Did you get the email from Duke IT yet? Once you've set up your Id just go to my.duke.edu and login and click email

Did you set up email or netID? The only thing I set up was netID but I think it's the same thing as email, right?

Thanks! I set up the netID days ago but had no idea of what to do/where to go from there. :oops:

I deposited a couple weeks back and haven't gotten this? I called to make sure I'm all set with my deposit and they I was, so should I just email or wait it out?

I would check spam and then email. You don't need to set everything up yet, but it's probably best to nip it in the bud. Getting your Duke ID seem pretty necessary for like everything

I keep getting a message that the link was blocked. I assume we'll have to wait to get it hooked up.

Also may just forward all my email like I did in UG

Update: I was able to get close adding it to my Android Gmail, but it wants administrator privileges which I can't give because that would mess up current work email. If you run it through iPhone and use exchange instead of outlook it should work

+1, also wondering about parking and insurance, etc.

Do we need to do anything to accept loans right now?

I remember reading something that said we would automatically be enrolled into the university's insurance mid September if we hadn't opted out. You can start buying parking passes July 15th. However, I'm a 0L so take everything I just said with a grain of salt.

not a big deal at all since you won't have traffic. I definitely prefer it to public transportation.
