Ubuntu is located on Duke’s Central Campus at 209 and 215 Alexander and 1708 Pace. Located right next to the Alexander bus stop, look for the big Ubuntu sign!

The two-story, courtyard layout is great for group living, whether we’re yelling down to the common room or throwing a party. In addition to the 27 apartments that house our members, we have a custom-built common room at 215 Alexander B. Our common room is a modified suite where we watch movies, host events, or study. We’ve outfitted it with ample furniture and a mini-library of books and movies. The “quad” between our three buildings boasts amenities such as a grill, several picnic tables, our huge swinging bench (you can see it from space!), and a sledding hill out back.

Apartments are either studio, single bedroom, or two bedroom with two occupants each. These include a full kitchen (oven, stove, refrigerator), private bathroom (shower/bath), and balcony. Hammock not included. Don’t sweat, we’ve got individual AC and heating control. Ubus make each space their own. We paint and decorate our apartments how we like, with plenty of space to live in. Just like real people!

As a central residence, Mill Village is close by. It’s a two-minute walk to the Devil’s Bistro, Uncle Harry’s General Store, the Central Campus pool, playing fields and more. E-prints and laundry units are right across the street and behind 215, close enough for you to walk there in slippers and boxers. Also, the Alexander Avenue bus stop is less than 30 seconds away — enough said. We also claim three parking lots right next to the buildings for easy access and parking. Additionally, the Bull City Connector has a stop right at our corner! Access to Durham is easy. 9th Street businesses, Sam’s Quick Shop, and Whole Foods are just right down the street.

Come check out our section! We’d be happy to give you a tour in person.

Andrew Method


Hey guys, my name is Andrew Method. I was born and raised in Park City, UT, and I’m a sophomore majoring in Biomedical Engineering. I love the snow, skiing, golfing, hiking, being outdoors, etc. I also really love driving, so if you see me cruisin around campus in my British racing green (yes, that is actually the color of my car, and yes I expect everyone to know the exact color) Mini Cooper with white racing stripes, feel free to wave. I’m a proud black-tenting member in Das Boot, I’m pretty involved with Catholic Center activities on campus, and I try to get out to the golf course to hit on the range or play a round every now and then. I can’t wait to meet everyone and get to know some of you! Happy rush!
