For Prospective members

Apply to join for the 2024-2025 school year here!

Here is information about LLCs from Duke’s HRL site:

“Duke University offers numerous opportunities for interested students to partake in intentionally designed Living Learning communities (LLCs) that incorporate the residential component of the college experience along with other academic and social pursuits. While membership in these groups may be limited, activities offered are often open to the general student population. LLCs are sponsored, resourced, and facilitated by a university department or office, often in conjunction with faculty partners. Students apply to join these communities and are selected by the sponsoring office.”


The Mitchell-White House is currently located on the third and fourth floors of Keohane 4E, on west campus.

Interested students can join the Mitchell-White House beginning sophomore year until senior year.

Selectivity each year depends on the number of bed spaces we are allotted by housing and the number of people who are interested in joining. Due to QuadEx we are expecting an influx of interested Black students, so make sure to come to our recruitment events for us to get to know each other!

During spring semester we will release an application to become a member of the LLC! In addition, we will host recruitment events on both campuses to get to know prospective members.

Keohane 4E has single room, double room, and suite style room options.

Living in the Mitchell-White house grants you access to a Black cultural community on Duke’s campus, exclusive events and merchandise, and new friends! 

House members are required to take the History of Us house course their first year in the house, as per Duke LLC policy. In addition, members must attend general body meetings and events, and respect other community members.

You can direct any questions to We look forward to hearing from you!
