New dormitory Trinity House opens on East Campus

Trinity House, Duke's newest dormitory, has opened its doors to students for the first time as the Spring semester nears.

The building will house upperclass students returning from study-away programs this semester, and beginning in Fall 2018 it will shift to housing first-year students.

The $25 million project was originally meant to replace Epworth, Jarvis and East residence halls—three of the oldest and smallest dorms on East Campus. 

The completed structure features four floors of dorm rooms, a common area with a kitchen, a game room and arcade and a movie theater. Each dorm room includes full-sized beds. 

Although East Campus adheres to a "dry" policy for alcohol, students aged 21 and over will be allowed to consume alcohol inside Trinity House this semester. Trinity House residents will also be able to purchase parking passes for the Smith Warehouse lot, as is the case for other East Campus residents.
