Larry Moneta, vice president for student affairs, said the University plans to phase out undergraduate housing on Central Campus by summer of 2019, at a Duke Student Government Senate meeting Wednesday evening. 

Moneta confirmed his statement to DSG, adding that these plans are subject to approval from the Board of Trustees and the University’s ability to hit its construction and renovation timelines. 

“The game plan is to retire Central Campus by the summer of 2019 and relocate everyone who would be on central to the Hollows and Swift complex,” Moneta said, referring to the Hollows Residence Hall and 300 Swift Apartments.

The University is currently constructing The Hollows off Towerview Drive. Construction on The Hollows—which is a three building complex—is expected to end by July 2019.

Moneta listed some alternative options for the use of the 57 acres on Central Campus, including office buildings, classroom space and graduate housing.
