A student ambassador conducting a campus tour for a group of prospects.Thousands of prospective students, parents, professionals, school groups, American Sign Language classes, and others visit Gallaudet University every year.

As the world's only university designed for deaf and hard hearing students, Gallaudet attracts students and visitors from throughout the United States and worldwide.

Visiting our beautiful campus, also known as Kendall Green, is the best way to learn about our exceptional academic programs and to see how we blend history and innovation.

Campus Tours

We are excited to reopen in-person tours. Starting Monday, August 30, our center will be able to welcome prospective students and their families, ASL classes, and other visitors. We invite you to Gallaudet University to see for yourself what life is like on campus.

All visitors must comply with University safety protocols, including:

  • Completing a health self-assessment just before arrival to campus. You will show this to the security officer at the gate, along with your campus access permit.
  • Wearing a mask as per university guidance (posted daily in multiple places on campus and on our social media channels @GallaudetU) and social distancing while on campus.

Guided campus tours are offered Monday through Friday four times throughout the day: 9:15 a.m., 11:15 a.m., 1:15 p.m., and 3:15 p.m.

Tours begin at the Maguire Welcome Center, located in the Edward Miner Gallaudet Memorial Building (EMG). Each tour lasts approximately one hour. Student Ambassadors conduct tours in American Sign Language (ASL), and we will provide voice interpreters for visitors who do not sign.

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.

If you are a prospective student looking to learn more about the admissions process at Gallaudet University, an admissions counselor will be available to meet with you in person either before or after your tour.
