Thousands of prospective undergraduate and graduate students and their families, school groups, sign language clubs, educators of deaf students, and international travelers visit Gallaudet University every year. A campus visit is the best way to learn about our exceptional academic programs and to see how we blend history and innovation.

Guided campus tours are offered Monday through Friday. Tours begin at the Maguire Welcome Center, located in the lobby of the Edward Miner Gallaudet Memorial Building (EMG). Each tour lasts approximately one hour. Tours are conducted by Student Ambassadors in American Sign Language (ASL), and voice interpreters are provided for visitors who do not sign. Voice-interpreted tours must be requested at least three days in advance. Your Student Ambassador will provide you with general information about Gallaudet and its academic programs, residential and commuter life, and extensive curricular and co-curricular activities.
