At Gallaudet University, living on-campus is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live in and be a part of a living and learning community.

Gallaudet alumni have told us that living on-campus gave them the opportunity to make lifelong friends. They were able to enjoy informal conversations (at meal times and late at night in the residence hall) and get involved in a variety of campus activities.

This is consistent with research at colleges and universities across the country indicating that on-campus students are significantly more likely to succeed academically, to be involved in activities on campus, to graduate, and to feel positive about their college experience than their off-campus peers.

For these reasons, like many public and private colleges and universities, Gallaudet University has implemented an on-campus residency requirement for first-year and second-year undergraduate students to live in University residence halls unless an exemption is granted. To learn more about the exemption process, please navigate to Exemptions.
