“Great Campus”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Almost feels like you are stepping into a European university, this is a campus with a ton of character, life, and lots going on.

“The "Must See" Place to go in Durham”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Beautiful campus! Walk the main quad, and don't miss a peak in the library -- Gothic on the outside but totally modern on the inside. Parking's a problem, but public parking is available in the garage next to the student union building, behind the Chapel.

“Beautiful campus”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

Went on a college visit with my daughter. The campus is nothing short of beautiful. Reminiscent of the United States Military Academy. The Chapel was amazing and looks like many of the cathedrals in Europe. My only complaint was lack of parking. Be prepared to walk a lot.
