Fuqua Welcome

Close to Station 9 and Berkshire Ninth Street where many Fuqua students live, as well as walking distance to the Ninth Street area with restaurants and bars. In particular, I really like being walking distance from Yoga Off East and Tavern (popular Fuqua hangout every Tuesday night). I chose Berkshire Main Street because I wanted to be in the same area where most of my classmates live, but also a little bit removed from the action so that I could be as involved in the social scene as I wanted. Also very convenient for team meetings since so many people live in this area. Berkshire Main amenities are really nice and I have enjoyed living here. Also recommend signing a two year lease with reduced rent over the summer during your internship.

Great location, but train is really loud

Really convenient to campus and the rest of the 9th street area, but it is really close to a train crossing that is really loud, sometimes early in the morning and late at night.

Enjoyed Living Here

Overall, I have enjoyed living at BMain and haven't had any large issues. I like that it is close to Station 9, but not in S9. All of the apartments have Nest thermostats in them, which is great for saving money on cooling/heating. The community kitchen space is really nice and is perfect for having a large group of people over. The common spaces can be reserved online, which is also very convenient.

Be aware of where you chose to live in the apartments, as we are very close to the train tracks and the apartments that face the tracks have to deal with incredibly loud trains 5-10x a day.

Living in Berkshire Main

Berkshire Main is one of the nicer buildings in the Ninth Street area. It is different from S9 and B9 because the complex is smaller, but with all the same amenities. In addition to that our hallways are internal. The building is a mix of (quiet) undergrads, doctors, and families. I moved here because I wanted access to the social life at S9 but also to be in a quieter building. It's been a great compromise and there are a handful of Fuquans here so I'm not alone. The facilities are comparable to B9 but the small size and internal hallways set it apart.

Ninth Street Reviews

111 reviews
Tiny "neighborhood" (does this one street even count as a neighborhood?) but has several key institutions, like supermarket, 5-7 nicer restaurants, 2 bars (both dive-y), a Duke store, a Pure Barre, several cute coffee shops, and random hipster shops. Short walk to Whole Foods, Cocoa Cinnamon, and Duke's East Campus (and Brodie Gym).
Close to 24Hr open Harris Teeter supermarket and many other small restaurants (including the famous Heavenly Buffaloes). There have been in the last two years about 4 assault reports that occurred at the Harris Teeter parking lot.
Most Fuquans live in this area. The Harris Teeter is convenient for walking. 9th Street has a lot of cool stores and restaurants. Easy to get to Fuqua.
Its fine. Nothing special. Just where most of the MBA students stay. Access to grocery store and some shops/eateries on Ninth Street.
Walkable to two grocery stores and countless places to eat. Safe and close to all my classmates. What more could I want?
You're within easy walking distance to stores, restaurants, and other major apartments popular with Fuqua students.
The immediate surrounding area seems to be quite safe, but if you go further, it doesn't look that good.
The 9th Street corridor is really pretty great. You are within walking distance of everything you'd need from a barber and a bank to beer and books. It is probably 5-10% more expensive (between Harris Teeter, apartment, and other shops markup) than other areas of Durham, however it is a great community if you're single and want to socialize.
