Duke University
Trinity Residence Hall

Duke University retained the O’Brien Atkins’ design team for the new Trinity Residence Hall, located on East Campus. With 271 beds, the new residence hall completes the Bell Tower quad Duke has developed in the southwest portion of its undergraduate campus. This residence hall is the long-term replacement for a trio of East Campus halls – Epworth, Jarvis and East – that are among the oldest remaining structures on the Duke campus.

There are 125 double-rooms, 6 ADA bedrooms, 10 Resident Assistant rooms and 2 Graduate Assistant studios as well as a 3-bedroom Faculty in Residence apartment. Kitchen facilities, a gaming room and a “common gathering space” capable of hosting several small groups, or one large group, add to the residential quality of student life. All residential and public common areas include LED lighting.
