Welcome to Gallaudet!
Every year, hundreds of prospective students, parents, professionals, school groups, sign language classes and other special groups visit Gallaudet University. Our visitors come from all over the United States and from countries all around the world.
Visiting Gallaudet's beautiful campus, also known as Kendall Green, is the best way to learn about the breadth of our academic programs and to see our historic and state-of-the-art facilities.
Tours begin at the Visitors Center, located in the lobby of the Edward Miner Gallaudet Memorial Building (EMG), Monday through Friday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and last approximately an hour. Tours are conducted in American Sign Language (ASL) and voice interpreters are provided for visitors who do not sign. Interpreted tours must be requested at least two weeks in advance.
Your Student Tour Guide will provide you with general information about Gallaudet, our quality academic programs, residential and commuter life, and extensive co-curricular activities.

Visitors may opt to go on a tour by using the self-guided campus tour pamphlet available at the Visitors Center, or walk around the campus on their own.
