NOTICE: The West Duke Building will be closed until further notice due to renovation efforts related to structural damage to the building. We will be operating from the Smith Warehouse for the duration of the project.

The main offices are on the second floor of Bay 4 in the Smith Warehouse building (off of Buchanan between Main and Maxwell). To find us, enter at Bay 4, on the south side of the building complex (facing the Durham Freeway overpass). These doors are open to the public from 7:30am-5:30pm Monday-Friday. The Bay 6 south doors remain open until 7:30pm Monday-Friday. Duke students, staff, and faculty can swipe into the building after hours with their DukeCard.

The parking lot on the south side of the Smith Warehouse can be accessed from the Maxwell/Buchanan or Maxwell/Campus Drive intersections. The lot offers 3 options:

  • Free 2-hour visitor spots outside of Bay 4.
  • 1 ungated metered area open to all visitors at the Buchanan entrance across from Bay 1. The meter is in effect from 7am to 9pm weekdays and 9am to 9pm weekends. The first 30 minutes is free – you can obtain a dashboard pass at the meter. Thereafter the rate is $2 per hour.
  • A central gated area, accessible by card swipe to Duke faculty, students and staff after 5:00pm on weekdays and all day on weekends. (Duke faculty and staff with premium-level parking passes can swipe into the Smith lot during business hours.)
