Life at Gallaudet
Barrier-Free Communication. Always.
Immerse yourself in Gallaudet’s fully American Sign Language (ASL) and English environment. No other university compares with our Bilingual Advantage.
Push yourself in a sports or intramural team.
You don’t have to be the perfect signer to be welcomed into the Gallaudet community. We’re committed to a climate of success.
If you are a new or emerging signer, know that you are welcome. As a member of the Gallaudet community, you will be fully supported in your ASL learning and improvement efforts from day one to graduation.
So whether you’re inside or outside of the classroom, you’ll experience the confidence that comes with modeling and building communication habits in ASL and English.
Discover the innovative research happening on our campus, proving that a bilingual approach enhances learning compared to learning in only one language.

Are there any myths you have heard–maybe from your very own doctor–about acquiring bilingual language skills in American Sign Language and English? We teamed up with the National Association of the Deaf to bust ASL myths.
