On-Campus Directions

SEAL is located in the Trent Semans Learning Center. The nearest parking is located at 200 Trent Drive. Once you park in the garage, you may take the garage elevator to level one where there is street access. Walk directly across the open quad toward the main Duke Medicine Pavilion.

Turn left, and proceed through the walkway between the Duke Medicine Pavilion and the Duke Cancer Center. Once you pass under the elevated walkway between the two buildings, you will see the Trent Semans Learning Center on the right hand side.

Take the elevator to the fifth floor - Simulation Center

Directions from Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU)

RDU is centrally located between Raleigh and Durham. Duke is approximately 14 miles west of RDU.

Follow Interstate 40 West from RDU toward Durham. A few miles out from the airport on I-40 West, begin moving to the far right lane to enter the Durham Freeway (Hwy. 147).

Continue to follow the Durham Freeway until you reach exit 15a (Elba/Trent), which exits to the right.

Once you take the exit, immediately move into the left lane. You will be on Trent Drive. Drive slowly as there is an immediate stop sign.

Continue past the stop sign. Go through the first stop light you will see a parking garage on the left. Follow the on-campus directions above to locate SEAL in the Duke Clinic.
