Filming on campus
Gallaudet University is the world's only liberal arts university in which all programs and services are designed to accommodate deaf and hard of hearing students. Our 99-acre campus includes buildings dating back to the late 1800s, many of which are in the National Register of Historic Places, as well as modern buildings designed with architectural concepts known as DeafSpace, which create a more visually accessible space for people who communicate using sign language. Learn more about Gallaudet and see a gallery of campus photos.
The Gallaudet University Office of Communications and Public Relations will assist news media with shooting still photos and video on campus as needed, including setting up locations, interviews, and arrangements for American Sign Language interpreters. Permission to film in a classroom must be authorized by the instructor.
