Edward Miner Gallaudet Memorial
Thousands of prospective students, parents, professionals, school groups, American Sign Language classes, and others visit Gallaudet University annually. As the world’s only university designed for deaf and hard of hearing students, Gallaudet attracts students and visitors from throughout the United States and worldwide.
Visiting our beautiful campus, also known as Kendall Green, is the best way to learn about our exceptional academic programs and to see how we blend our rich history and culture with innovation. We invite you to Gallaudet University to see what life is like on campus.
You may also explore our campus on your own with our self-guided tour brochure if your preferred tour date is unavailable. The brochures are available at the Maguire Welcome Center. Stop by. We’d love to meet you!
All guided campus tours are offered daily four times throughout the day: 9:15 am, 11:15 am, 1:15 pm, and 3:15 pm, except for weekends and holidays. Tours begin at the Maguire Welcome Center in the Edward Miner Gallaudet Memorial Building (EMG). Each tour lasts approximately an hour to an hour and a half. Student Ambassadors conduct American Sign Language (ASL) tours, and we will provide voice interpreters for visitors who do not sign fluently.
During our tours, student ambassadors delve into the rich history of Gallaudet and the immersive experience Gallaudet affords our community. Prospective students will also have the opportunity to learn more about Gallaudet and its academic programs, residential and commuter life, and extensive curricular and co-curricular activities. Students interested in attending Gallaudet will also be able to meet with an admissions counselor.
