The von der Heyden Studio Theater
The von der Heyden Studio Theater supports a wide variety of performances unlike any other venue on Duke’s campus. With a moveable seat platform, a huge projection screen, and windows that can let in natural light or be blacked out, it can be configured in many ways.
New studios for WXDU 88.7 FM
WXDU, Duke’s non-commercial, student-run radio station, has moved from East Campus into custom-designed studio space in the Ruby.
