The Office of Residence Life and Housing, a unit of Student Affairs, has the primary responsibility for the management of facilities and programs in the five residence halls, Faculty Row houses, and Kendall Apartment complex. The Office of Residence Life and Housing provides quality programming, ensures the safety and security of the residents, proper referrals to available services on- and off-campus, maintains discipline in the residence halls, Faculty Row houses, and Kendall Apartments, and runs several paraprofessional programs in and out of the residence halls.


Residence Halls

First and second year students are required to reside in the University residence halls. Living in one of the University's five residence halls and the Faculty Row Houses offers students a unique opportunity to become an integral part of a campus community. While living in the residence halls, opportunities for social, mental, and emotional growth are greatly enhanced. Gallaudet encourages an appreciation of diversity, and residence life offers real-life opportunities to increase understanding and interactions with students from a variety of cultural, geographical, educational, and communication backgrounds.
