Commuter Programs

Commuter Lounge is where the commuter students of Gallaudet University stay, store their things, eat their meals, and complete their school work. The staff in the Commuter Lounge offer programs and workshops to students to become familiar with a variety of topics such as Renter's policy with their Landlords. Also we encourage our commuter students to become good citizens of their communities. In other words, we are the commuter students’ home away from home on Kendall Green.
