WALK TO CAMPUS! University Commons is a renovated apartment community consisting primarily of one bedrooms. Located within walking distance of Duke University and downtown Durham. You've got lots of options at University Commons.

The expansive layout of the community provides plenty of space for off-street parking. With eight different one bedroom options, we have a floor plan to suit any budget. Our largest floor plans come with washer, dryer, and dishwasher; we also have a laundry facility on site for our apartments that do not have washer/dryer in unit!

For years we’ve been the preferred choice for Duke affiliates due to our location, price, and range of floor plan options. International students rest easy: we offer flexible deposit options and furnished apartments, we can accommodate special move in dates or times, and best of all, you don’t need a car!

In addition, residents enjoy access to a 24 hour fitness center, saltwater pool and grills in addition to all of the amenities located at our sister property, University Apartments, across the street!
