Housing and Meals (Summer only)

LLHR 6 Student Lounge

How to Apply for Housing
Many students opt to live on campus when taking a summer class. Gallaudet’s residence halls are air conditioned and equipped with free TV cable, Internet access and visual alerting systems. Each room or suite is furnished with twin beds, study desks, and chairs. There are also drawers and closet storage. Residents will be provided with dorm linen. Our dorm linen package includes a pillow, a set of sheets/ pillowcase, a blanket, and one medium towel. Students will need to bring their own washcloths, additional towels, and toiletry items. Coin-operated washers and dryers are located in the basement of each hall.

Students registering for undergraduate, graduate or PST classes through Summer Programs (non-degree students) should submit the Housing/Meal Application as part of their application/registration package. If you are at least a high school graduate, you are eligible to request on-campus residence housing.

All residents must abide by residence hall rules and regulations.  A copy of the rules and regulations will be provided at check-in.

All tuition and fees including room and meal charges must be paid in full two weeks before a session begins.  Housing reservations will be canceled if payment in full is not received by the same date.

Upon on your arrival, please go directly to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) which is located on the ground floor of Carlin Hall. DPS is responsible for issuing cards and parking permits. ID cards are $15 (if you have a previously issued photo ID card from Gallaudet, please make sure to bring it with you as it can be reactivated at no cost). Residence Halls check-in begins at 2:00 pm on the day prior to the start of your program. There is a $50 fee charge for a replacement of a lost key or lock change. Lost or stolen keys should be reported to your Resident Assistant immediately.

The Summer Programs office is located in Kendall Hall and will be open Monday-Friday, from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. If you will be commuting to campus, plan on picking up your registration materials (ID/Meal card if requested, class schedule, etc.) from the Summer Programs office during this time unless notified otherwise.

You must check-out of the Residence Hall by 10:00 am on the day following the end of your program.  Prior to your departure, you are responsible for clearing your room and emptying all trash. Turn in your room key and Access Card to the Resident Assistant on duty in the residence hall office where you are staying. If you do not return your room key, you will be charged $50 for it.

Room Fee

Room assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis.  Students may choose between single or double occupancy. Due to the limited number of single rooms available, there is no guarantee that a request for a single room will be honored.
Double Room $37
Single Room $48
Linen Fee $13 (one time fee)
An alternative to residence hall accommodations is the Kellogg Conference Hotel at Gallaudet University. They can be reached at 202-651-6000 or you may make reservations online.
