Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are not accepting requests at this time.  Further updates will be communicated here.  Thank you.


Pending availability, Visitor Housing is available to those who wish to stay in one of our residence halls on Gallaudet University's campus. This option is relatively cheaper than surrounding hotels and provides you the opportunity to experience Gallaudet University's vibrant, rich and diverse culture. Furthermore, residing on campus allows you with the opportunity to be close to your loved ones already residing on or around campus, easily participate in or observe events on or around campus, or give you a taste of what residence hall living is all about.

Rates, Linen Fee, Payment Options, and Cancellations

Please inquire within for our nightly rates. The one-time fee is $15.00 for each set of linens.

LINENS: A set of linens includes a blanket, pillow, pillowcase, one fitted sheet and one flat sheet, and a large bath towel.

We accept debit/credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, and Discover), money orders and cash (in person only). If you prefer to pay with a money order or cash, payments must be received prior to retrieving housing assignments. Once we receive your payment, we will be able to move forward with your reservation.

Cancellations within 72 hours will incur a $25.00 fee per room/suite after payments are made. This will be deducted from the balance refunded.

We reserve the right to change our prices at any time.


Availability is determined on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once your registration form is received and availability is determined, you will then be contacted with more information. If we do have availability, further instructions regarding payments will be provided.

NOTE: We will honor requests that are made at least seventy-two (72) hours in advance.


We strive to accommodate those who need special accommodations for medical/disability reasons. Please be sure to inform us what types of needs are needed. This includes, but is not limited to: suites with a bathtub, wheelchair accessibility, shower rails, and lower floors. Once we are aware of any accommodations, we will do our best to ensure they are met.

Our accommodations are much like what you would expect at a hostel; each of our guests will be provided with a twin-XL bed, student desk and chair, a closet/wardrobe, and a dresser. Guests staying in a suite with a private bathroom will be provided toilet paper.

We do not provide other items such as toiletries (e.g., shampoo, soap, lotion), washcloths and hand towels, other personal-care items (e.g., hair dryer, hangers, iron), trashcans, refrigerators, microwaves, alarms/clocks, and the like, so please bring any other additional items you may need during your stay. TVs are available for use in the lobby areas.
