Living on Campus
With no commute time or meal preparation to worry about, many students opt to live on campus and use that time to study, work part-time, and participate in campus activities. Living on campus provides more social and learning opportunities; flexible study schedules; and easy convenience to Gallaudet's library, computer labs and Washington, D.C. Free TV cable and Internet access in each room are also a plus.
The residence hall staff works together with residents to provide a sense of community through educational programs and living arrangements. Students may opt to live in theme communities such as Sports and Recreation or Leadership. Communities in the residence halls encourage residents to interact in a socially and educationally supportive environment with those having common interests and goals on the same floor or wing.
The University campus has six residence halls which are locked 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and require the resident's access card for entry. Each building has vending machines and laundry facilities in the basement for residents' use. Laundry cards for washers and dryers, both of which are card operated, are available for purchase at a fee of $1.25 per load from the Department of Public Safety in Carlin Hall.
All rooms are wired for telephone, computer, and cable TV hookup.
