Gally Growth

Gallaudet will hold a series of community workshops over the next few weeks about the school's building plans. Officials want to add housing for 150 students on campus to accommodate the expected 2% increase of the student body next year. Right now, the University has 1617 students. The campus includes about 100 acres in the heart of DC with four acres on two parcels west of campus on either side of the DC Farmers market. School officials hope to open up Olmsted Gate soon. It's a wide pedestrian entrance at the Florida and 6th Street. A plaza is also planned Neal Street.
