Partner DukeCards

At this time, only legally married spouses are eligible for DukeCards. If your partner meets that criteria, you can request a DukeCard for your partner via the process outlined below:

  • Visit the DukeCard website: https://dukecard.duke.edu/
  • Click “Get your DukeCard” on the top menu bar (please note – though a menu of other pages will appear when you hover over “Get your DukeCard”, you should just click directly on “Get your DukeCard” to pull up the next page)
  • On the next page, under “How to Get Your DukeCard”, expand the menu for “Sponsored Guests” and click the link to follow to the “OIT Sponsored Accounts Page”
    • Follow the steps to sponsor a guest account for your spouse
    • Once the request is complete, your spouse will receive an email to add some information to the request
    • You both will receive confirmation when the account is active
  • At the end of this process, your spouse will receive a Duke Unique ID. Once they have an active Unique ID, he/she can come to the DukeCard Office to get a DukeCard printed.

Card pricing is available on the DukeCard website.

With a DukeCard, partners will have access to library services at Fuqua (and across Duke) and the ability to purchase a Duke gym membership. Details on gym memberships can be found here.

If you have any questions about getting a DukeCard for your partner, please contact the DukeCard office directly at dukecard@duke.edu.

Clubs and OrgSync

Fuqua students can sponsor an OrgSync account for their partner through FuquaWorld. From the FuquaWorld home page, click “Student Life” from the top menu, and select “Invite your partner to OrgSync” under “OrgSync@Fuqua”. Step-by-step instructions with screenshots are available here.

Once your partner’s OrgSync account is created, he or she will have full access to OrgSync, including the ability to join clubs and RSVP to events. Partners are generally welcome to join all Daytime MBA clubs, but note that certain events and programming may be restricted to only students. Always contact the club co-presidents or student event planners if you ever have questions about whether partners are welcome to attend a specific event.

Career and Job Search Support

We are happy to offer career and job search support to the partners of incoming Daytime MBA students who will be seeking employment in the Durham area. Partners should be authorized to work in the US. The learn more, please send an email to CMC-Info@duke.edu. Be sure to reference the name of the student enrolled in the Daytime MBA program.

Community Involvement

There are a number of resources that we recommend to partners looking to volunteer or serve the Durham community:

Continuing Education

Partners are not eligible to take or audit classes at Fuqua. However, there are many other educational opportunities available to partners through Durham Tech, Duke Continuing Studies and Duke Continuing Studies: Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI).

Advice from CAPS

Duke’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) has put together some useful advice for maintaining a committed relationship during graduate or professional studies.
