Virtual Orientation

Are you getting ready to come to Duke University?  Do you have questions about housing, health insurance, transportation, and visas?  We have answers to most, if not all, of your questions, so plan to join the International House for their summer Virtual Orientation and Q&A session with offices from around Duke in mid-June. More info to come soon.

We want to make the online Q&A session as helpful as possible; therefore, we are encouraging everyone to watch the videos prepared just for you BEFORE the online session.  You can find the video links on our website. Videos are on youtube and
