Visitor Housing


Visitor Housing is available to those who wish to stay in one of the six residence halls on Gallaudet University's campus. This option is relatively cheaper than surrounding hotels and provides you with the opportunity to experience Gallaudet University's vibrant, rich and diverse culture. 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.

Visitors will be assigned to suites/rooms in one of the six residence halls pending availability. In each suite/room there are 2 to 4 twin-sized beds, desks, chairs, closets, dressers, and night stands. We do not provide microwaves, refrigerators, hangers, hair dryers, irons or ironing boards. TVs are available for use in the lobby areas.

To learn more about our services, you can download our Visitor Housing Brochure here. The brochure includes information about your stay at Gallaudet University and in the Washington Metropolitan Area.


Rates are $33 per person, per night for the first person and $13 per night for an extra person. There is an optional one-time Linen Fee of $13 per person. A set of linens includes a blanket, pillow, pillowcase, one fitted sheet and one flat sheet, and a large bath towel.

NOTE: Starting on May 18, 2014, the rates will be increased to $35 per night for the first person and $15 per night for an extra person. The Linen Fee will remain unchanged at $13 per person. To complete a form for a stay after May 18th, you can download here.

We have a cancellation policy of $25 per room/suite. This will be deducted from the balance refunded.

We accept debit/credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, and Discover), money orders and cash (in person only). If you prefer to pay with a money order or cash, payments must be received prior to retrieving housing assignments. Once we receive your payment, we will be able to move forward with your reservation.

We reserve the right to change our prices at any time.
