Housing and Logistics

Housing and Dining

The historic campus of Gallaudet Universitythe world’s only university dedicated to deaf and hard-of-hearing students, will be our home for the duration of the Institute.

Campus housing will be available to participants at the reasonable rate of $50 per person, per night (plus a one-time linen fee charge of $15). All dorm rooms are single occupancy, suite style, and include a kitchen. Two rooms share one bathroom. Gallaudet University is fully committed to accessibility and will accommodate visitors with disabilities (wheelchair, blind, deaf-blind, service animals, etc). Campus housing includes complimentary access to the fitness complex.

The Kellogg Conference Hotel, located on the Gallaudet campus, is another (more expensive) option. Participants may also, of course, opt to seek individual or shared housing off campus, and the Institute’s staff will facilitate communicating housing opportunities through a group email list.

Affordable dining options on campus abound and cater to all dietary preferences. In addition, the famed Union Market is just around the corner and there are dozens of restaurants on nearby H Street.

Internet Access

High-speed internet access will be provided free of charge to all participants.

Local Transportation

Gallaudet University is served by the NOMA/Gallaudet/M St NE metro station, as well as several city buses. A Gallaudet free shuttle bus picks up and drops off passengers at nearby Union Station. Campus parking is plentiful and cheap.

More detailed information and additional resources about the Gallaudet campus and about Washington, D.C. will be provided to accepted participants.
