Below is important information and resources for your day-to-day life at ADF. Schedule is subject to change. Check back for updates and additional information.
Arrival and Departure

• Workshop for Educators | Gerri Houlihan: Sunday, June 25
Participants check-in 10:00 AM–12:00 PM on their arrival date. Participants should plan to arrive to ADF to check-in at Gilbert-Addoms Residence Hall, located at 1368 Campus Dr., Durham, NC on Duke University’s East Campus, where the ADF summer administrative offices are located.
At check-in, participants receive their check-in packet, finalized intensive schedules, ADF/Duke ID card, a prepaid ADF T-Shirt (paid by May 10), dorm housing information and key if living on-campus, parking pass, and will resolve any outstanding student form or billing matters. All participants must check-in before attending opening events or classes.
Early Arrivals: Advanced check-in and early move in dates for dorm residents cannot be accommodated. Please make separate arrangements if you plan to arrive in Durham before your program’s official check-in date.
Late Arrivals: ADF strongly encourages participants to arrive during the designated check-in time, but understands that extenuating circumstances may arise. Participants unable to arrive by 12:00 PM must notify the ADF School at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so arrangements can be made. Late arrivals may be permitted on a case-by-case basis. Fees will not be prorated for participants who arrive late to the festival.

Heat Exhaustion/Heat Stroke Prevention
Durham summers are hot! Click the links below to inform yourself about potentially harmful consequences of exercising in the heat. Take note of the symptoms, prevention methods, and steps of action.
Best forms of prevention:
- Drink lots of fluids (water, electrolytes, etc.)
- Stay nourished
- Wear loose-fitting, lightweight clothing
- Take notice of the hottest parts of the day and your own body temperature
Best steps of action:
- If possible, move person into a cooler environment (i.e. into the shade)
- Attempt to decrease body temperature by pouring or spraying cool liquids
- Drink water or cool liquids, especially sports drinks that contain electrolytes
If necessary, call 911 for the Durham Police or (919) 684-2444 for the Duke Police. Notify the school staff by calling Gilbert-Addoms at (919) 684-6402 or send someone to Gilbert-Addoms for help after 911 has been called.
Gender Neutral Bathrooms
ADF believes in inclusion and fairness, which includes the right for each individual to access public facilities according to their gender as opposed to their biological sex. All-gender bathrooms exist in some, but not all classrooms and performance spaces. Wherever male/female facilities are the only options available, ADF honors the right for students, faculty, and staff to choose the facility that makes them most comfortable. We acknowledge that this is an imperfect situation and hope that the campuses that ADF occupies will prioritize updating their facilities to be fully inclusive.
