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.
RATES, LINEN FEE, PAYMENT OPTIONS, AND CANCELLATIONS
Rates are $35 per person, per night for the first person and $15 per night for an extra person. There is an optional one-time Linen Fee of $13 per person.
LINENS: A set of linens includes a blanket, pillow, pillowcase, one fitted sheet and one flat sheet, and a large bath towel.
