Duke students challenge Kryzyzewskiville policies

February 19, 2018 - 11:28 am

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Several Duke University students have filed a complaint about the tent city where they line up for basketball tickets, saying it discriminates against people with hearing difficulties.

The Duke Chronicle reports the students' complaint says the tent check policy for the area known as Krzyzewskiville violates the equal protection clause of the Duke Student Government Constitution.

The Duke Student Government Judiciary was scheduled to hear arguments Monday evening.

The complaint says two members of Tent No. 74 missed a tent check on Feb. 14 because they couldn't hear bullhorn warnings. As of the 2017-18 season, students are no longer allowed to use location services as proof they were in place.

Two members of that tent work for the Chronicle.

The tent city is named after Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski.
