You won’t believe the opportunities open to you as a Gallaudet student in the capital of the United States.
The White House and U.S. Capitol are not just sightseeing destinations; they provide numerous internship placements, as do businesses and organizations throughout the District.
Take classes at Georgetown University or the University of Maryland: we’ve joined with 13 other universities to share resources in the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area.
Enjoy top sporting events, concerts, movies and theater productions, many fully captioned or interpreted: the Washington, D.C., area is home to a large, vibrant community of deaf and hard of hearing individuals. The hip Atlas District and NoMa neighborhoods near campus feature culturally diverse restaurants with servers who know ASL.
Access all the area has to offer quickly and easily: just across the street is Union Market with a variety of restaurants and shopping, or you can use Capital Bikeshare, Zipcar or our free Metro shuttle to connect anywhere in the District right from campus.
Gallaudet is one of the closest universities to the U.S. Capitol and the National Mall, giving you exceptional access to prime internships and jobs as well as cultural experiences.
Walk next door to the restaurants and shops at Union Market, or up the street to H Street's culturally diverse restaurants.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
