Duke University - Durham students often refer to the campus as "the Gothic Wonderland," a nickname referring to the Gothic revival architecture of West Campus.

Duke University - Durham supervisor of planning and construction wrote that the stone has "an older, more attractive antique effect" and a "warmer and softer coloring than the Princeton stone" that gave the university an "artistic look". James B. Duke initially suggested the use of stone from a quarry in Princeton, New Jersey, but later amended the plans to use stone from a local quarry which was purchased in Hillsborough to reduce costs.

Duke University - Durham requires its students to live on campus for the first three years of undergraduate life, except for a small percentage of second semester juniors who are exempted by a lottery system.

These buildings range in occupancy size from 50 (Epworth—the oldest dorm, built in 1892 as "the Inn") to 190 residents (Gilbert-Addoms).

Similarly, students in the Focus program, a first-year program that features courses clustered around a specific theme, live together in the same residence halls.
