Room and Board

Room

Freshman and Sophomore students are required to live on campus; juniors and seniors may live off campus. Students living off campus may buy meals individually at the University cafeteria (Cafe Bon Appetit), Market Place, Rathskeller, Starbucks, and the Bistro, or choose from a variety of board plans. Room arrangements are made on the basis of a room contract covering the academic year. Rooms are available only to those who also pay board for meals served in student dining facilities. The room contract provides for a room and the necessary furnishings. The standard room fee for the fall or spring semester is $3,540** and does not include the winter recess. 

University residence hall space is limited. For this reason, the application for housing is accepted only with the $50 admission fee and the $200 room deposit. All applications should be received no later than June 1 for the fall semester. New and returning students accepted after June must return room applications as soon as possible and will not be guaranteed residence hall space. To be eligible for University housing, students must carry at least 10 undergraduate or nine graduate credit hours. This academic load must be maintained throughout the semester.

**Room: Room rates in the residence halls are for one semester.  Variable room rate options are: 1) Single rooms with private bathroom in Carlin Hall and LLRH6: $4,040.00, 2) Single rooms with community bathroom in Ballard West and Peet Hall: $3,790.00, 3) Standard double-occupancy rooms in Benson, Carlin, Clerc and LLRH6 residence halls: $3,540.00.  4) Standard double-occupancy rooms in Ballard West:$3,290.00, 5) Standard double-occupancy rooms in Ballard and Denison Houses $960.00 per month and Fay House $920.00 per month.  Note: Students with special housing accommodations approved by OSWD will follow standard room rate of $3,540.00. 

Room and Board Changes or Cancellations

If a student moves out of Gallaudet housing during the semester, refunds will be made using the same criteria as for withdrawals. If a student moves into Gallaudet housing during the semester, charges will be made based on the number of weeks remaining in the semester

Internship Meal Plan

Students on internships may qualify for an internship meal plan. Under this plan, students purchase dining dollars instead of purchasing a normal block based meal plan. To qualify for the plan, students will need a letter from their department advisor written on department letterhead indicating the nature of the internship, internship hours and the number of days per week required to be off campus. They will also need a letter from the place of the internship detailing the same information.

Students should submit the letters and complete a request form for the Internship Meal Plan at the University Post Office in the lower level of the Student Union Building.
