Campus Design & Planning
Nineteenth-Century Roots, Twenty-first Century Vision
Hanging in the balance between our campus’ roots and our vision for the future, the Campus Design and Planning is responsible for maintaining our historic campus while developing concepts capable of meeting the needs of our growing university.
We owe it all to Fredrick Law Olmsted–the designer behind New York City’s Central Park and the U.S. Capitol’s western terrace–who in 1866 designed our beautiful campus. Now a National Historic Landmark District, our campus covers 99 acres of land and 2.5 million square feet of academic, residential, and support buildings, including the Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center–All in the heart of Washington, D.C.
In 2013, the District of Columbia’s Zoning Commission approved the Gallaudet University 2022 Campus Plan, the University’s vision for campus development for 2012 to 2022
Funding: Total revenues and other support for FY2021 were approximately $195.9 million
Endowment: As of the end of FY2021, the University’s endowment was approximately $239.9 million
Community Impact: Gallaudet is one of the area’s largest businesses, with direct salaries, wages, and benefits totaling more than $116.4 million in FY2021
The University spent another $89 million on goods and services and $17.2 million on capital improvements.
Since 2012, Gallaudet has constructed two new residence halls and renovated 14 buildings.
A few ways we’ve been able to incorporate DeafSpace design into our campus:
