Fay & Ballard Residence Halls

Originally a part of Faculty Row on Gallaudet University’s campus, the Fay and Ballard houses have served as administrative offices for the past several decades. In response to the 2022 Campus Plan, both houses were recently renovated as group living residence halls. Each house is now home to 12-16 students, with bedrooms on the upper floors and a shared kitchen, study and living area on the ground floor. A modern update to these beautiful examples of Victorian Gothic architecture, the interiors were designed around the recently developed Deafspace Design Guide.
