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.

If you are at least 18 years of age and participating in a summer program, you may request on-campus residence housing.  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. Participants in non-credit programs may request housing and/or a meal plan by completing the Housing/Meals Application Form directly.

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

Carlin Hall

Benson Hall

Clerc Hall

Residence Halls check-in begins at 2:00 pm on the day prior to the start of your program. If you have requested on-campus housing, please check in at Carlin Hall. The Resident Assistant will give you your dorm room assignment, key, and access cards. There is a $75 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 or Access Card, you will be charged $75 for each item.

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 $36
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.

Commuter students and guests may also elect to purchase a meal plan. Meals may be purchased at the dining hall cashier or through Summer Programs.

Our menu includes a wide variety of meats, vegetables, vegetarian dishes, salads, deli sandwiches, desserts, and beverages. Gallaudet University is very conscious of our students with special dietary needs. If you have dietary restrictions and need special meals, you should contact the Food Services manager, Davina Kwong at davina.kwong@gallaudet.edu to arrange for them.

Replacement ID/Meal/Dorm Access Card
Your Access Card is used as an ID card, meal card and dorm access card. A $75 fee is charged for each card that is lost or is not returned at the end of your program.

Commuter Students
Upon your arrival to campus, you will pick up your temporary ID card from the Department of Public Safety (DPS) which is located on the ground floor of Carlin Hall. This is also where you will obtain your parking permit if you are planning to park your car on campus. Permits are $3 per week or $20 for the summer.
