We have secured two different housing options directly on Duke's campus. The first is the Washington Duke Inn, which is the site of all the conference's evening events: keynote address, opening dinner, and poster session/dinner. This option includes a room block with both singles and doubles (at $199 per room for each). You may book one of these rooms by telephone via the reservations department by dialing (919) 490-0999 and requesting the Political Networks (Group ID: 702499) guest room block. Or you can make reservations online here. Please note that the reservations link may not be supported on all mobile devices and that the final day to book a room at this reduced rate is Monday, April 29.
The second option is intended primarily for students: a set of dorm rooms in Edens Quad on West Campus. The rooms will be $50 per night, plus a $60 flat fee for linens (1 fitted sheet, 1 flat sheet, 1 pillow, 1 pillow case, 4 bath towels, 4 wash clothes, 1 blanket). We will provide information as to how to take advantage of this option as soon as it becomes available to us, likely by March 22; watch this space for details.
While we feel these options comprise the most convenient options, others are available. Please see the links here for additional information about the area. We should caution you that parking is difficult on campus. There is hourly parking both at the Bryan Center and at the Duke Gardens, though neither is guaranteed to be available.
