About Gallaudet University

Gallaudet University is the world leader in liberal education and career development for deaf and hard-of-hearing undergraduate students. The University enjoys an international reputation for the outstanding graduate programs it provides deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing students, as well as for the quality of the research it conducts on the history, language, culture, and other topics related to deaf people. In addition, the University's Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center serves deaf and hard-of-hearing children at its two demonstration schools and throughout the nation by developing, implementing, and disseminating innovative educational strategies.

Gallaudet University is unique as a place in which higher education, research, and scholarly pursuits of all kinds are conducted in an inclusive environment where the ASL/English bilingual communication abilities and potential of deaf students are fully realized.

Gallaudet enrolls a diverse and talented student body and engages them in rigorous academic programs that promote life-long learning in a climate that fosters respect among students, faculty, staff, and administrators for the full range of human diversity, educational backgrounds, ideas, and perspectives.

Gallaudet is a unique university. Washington, D.C. is a unique city. Gallaudet will be your home away from home, and while here in D.C., you will eat, sleep, learn, play sports, or participate in extra-curricular activities.

Gallaudet's campus, also known as Kendall Green, is a beautiful and vibrant campus full of history. We are only steps from the Nation's Capitol and the many museums, theaters and restaurants that are abundant in Washington, D.C.

Gallaudet often works out arrangements with the local community members and organizations to use University facilities. In 2003 Gallaudet established the Gallaudet Connection that allows residents of the Near Northeast area to register and use the University's outside sport facilities.
