We have seven University residence halls and three Faculty Row houses totaling approximately 1,200 beds. In addition to the aforementioned residential facilities, we have housing at the Kendall Apartments where apartment units are available for use by families with children. We have housing for married couples without children in our University residence halls. For both Married Housing and Kendall Apartments, at least one spouse or parent must be matriculated at Gallaudet University as a full-time graduate or undergraduate student. For information on University residence halls and the Faculty Row, please visit here.
The Housing component covers anything related to the daily living in the residence hall rooms and on-campus apartments, room selection, roommate changes, and most importantly, housing assignments. We believe that a housing assignment entitles the resident the opportunity to be a part of a living and learning community.
The Residence Hall Management and Supervision component cover the daily educational programming aspects of residence hall living and policy enforcement. There are approximately 60 residence hall staff members employed by our office ranging from Resident Advisors to Office Assistants to Staff Residential Assistants. The Coordinators of Residence Education have total administrative responsibility of University residence halls. We work closely with the Department of Public Safety to ensure that our residents have a safe and positive living experience. Please visit Residence Hall Policies to view the Student Handbook online. We also have a Frequently Asked Questions page where you will find answers to the most commonly-asked questions.
The Marketing and Assessment component covers the efforts in getting the message out to the community about Residence Life and Housing and ensuring that we gather data on the residence hall living experience.
We have over 60 professional and paraprofessional staff. Our unit is the largest employer of paraprofessionals at the university. You can learn more about our team by navigating to the Residence Life and Housing Team page.
