Visitor Housing

Update as of April 14, 2016:

Visitor Housing will not accept requests for the Spring 2016 Semester.  

We will only accept requests for May 15, 2016 to August 7, 2016.

Due to a large scale event at Gallaudet in June/July 2016, we are unable to accept requests for June 20, 2016 to July 20, 2016.

Unfortunately, we are not able to accept requests from DC Interns this summer.

For Commencement Housing, please go here.


Pending availability, Visitor Housing is available to those who wish to stay in one of our residence halls on Gallaudet University's campus. This option is relatively cheaper than surrounding hotels and provides you the opportunity to experience Gallaudet University's vibrant, rich and diverse culture. Furthermore, residing on campus allows you with the opportunity to be close to your loved ones already residing on or around campus, easily participate in or observe events on or around campus, or give you a taste of what residence hall living is all about.


Rates are $36.00 per person, per night for the first person and $14.00 per night for an extra person. There is an optional one-time Linen Fee of $13.00 per person.  For Commencement Housing rates, please go here.

NOTE: Starting on MAY 15, 2016, the rates will be $37.00 per person, per night for the first person and $13.00 per night for an extra person.  The linen fee will be $13.00 per person.

LINENS: A set of linens includes a blanket, pillow, pillowcase, one fitted sheet and one flat sheet, and a large bath towel.

The chart below illustrates our daily rates for the first and second person regardless of room/suite, optional linen rate, and our cancellation policy.

We strive to accommodate those who need special accommodations for medical/disability reasons. Please be sure to inform us what types of needs are needed. This includes, but is not limited to: suites with a bathtub, wheelchair accessibility, shower rails, and lower floors. Once we are aware of any accommodations, we will do our best to ensure they are met.

Our accommodations are much like what you would expect at a hostel; each of our guests will be provided with a twin-XL bed, student desk and chair, a closet/wardrobe, and a dresser. Guests staying in a suite with a private bathroom will be provided toilet paper.

We do not provide other items such as toiletries (e.g., shampoo, soap, lotion), washcloths and hand towels, other personal-care items (e.g., hair dryer, hangers, iron), trashcans, refrigerators, microwaves, alarms/clocks, and the like, so please bring any other additional items you may need during your stay.  TVs are available for use in the lobby areas.
