WE’RE CLOSED FOR SUMMER, SEE YOU IN THE FALL!
Tucked behind Wilson Dorm on East Campus, the Duke Coffeehouse is a mecca for alternative culture at Duke as well as a link between the University and the Durham community. The Coffeehouse was founded in 1981 by SHARE (Student Housing for Academic and Residential Experimentation, Duke’s first non-Greek selective living group), and run by SHARE until 2003, when it reopened under the administrative umbrella of the Duke University Union. During the week, students study and socialize amidst the aroma of fresh brewed coffee. On the weekends, the Coffeehouse is transformed into a live venue for local and touring musicians, plays, open mics, student performances, and the occasional drag show.
