Duke University is a university located in Durham, North Carolina.

Isobel Saltzman attended while she was still human to learn about supernatural beings. She also met her husband Alaric Saltzman over there. A Few years later John Gilbert sent a vampire named Damon to her, not knowing that she wanted to be turned. Vanessa, a new character in Season Two, is shown to have attended here. Damon, Alaric, and Elena came here to find more information on werewolves.

It is revealed in Season Six that Sarah Salvatore, the daughter of Zach Salvatore and Gail, and the great niece of Stefan and Damon Salvatore, also attends Duke University, studying for an Art Major.

Season Two

In Bad Moon Rising, Damon, Alaric, and Elena came here to see Isobel's research about werewolves. Vanessa attacked Elena with a crossbow, but Damon saved her by letting the dart hit him instead. They found out that according to legend a werewolf bite can kill a vampire. Damon also found a book engraved with the word "Petrova" on it, and he knew that Katherine's real name is Katerina Petrova. He gave the book to Elena and they soon left the university.

Season Six

Stefan, when telling Monique about the real Sarah Salvatore, mentions that she would probably be in her dorm at Duke University.
