If you have an on-campus emergency, call or text Gallaudet DPS at 202- 651-5555 for immediate assistance. Call or text 911 for emergencies occurring off-campus. DPS is the first responder to campus emergencies and will provide first aid and guide DC emergency responders directly to your campus location. If you have a non-emergency medical situation and want to receive care before SHS reopens, consider going to an urgent care clinic instead of the emergency room. The cost is typically less expensive.
SHS does not provide dental care but there are dental offices in the area that are either fluent in ASL, within walking distance of Gallaudet, or provide emergency dental services.
It is recommended to get vaccinated prior to visiting certain countries. Travel clinics specialize in administering the appropriate vaccines based on your travel destinations.
Gallaudet University, chartered in 1864, is a private university for deaf and hard of hearing students.
