Welcome to the East Duke Parlors


Pink Parlor

Over the decades, the elegant and comfortable East Duke Parlors have hosted countless Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies events, as well as many other Duke University lectures and meetings. With their Victorian beauty and splendor, the Pink and Blue parlors will provide your event with a setting that is a step back in time.

The parlors—located on the first floor of the East Duke Building—are maintained by GSF. They were endowed by alumnae from the Women's College for use by Duke academic groups.
