ASL Community Housing

American Sign Language Housing is an accessible living community open to Deaf, DeafBlind and hard-of-hearing students, as well as hearing students of ASL and others who know American Sign Language. ASL Housing consists of one co-ed floor of a residential building located in the Alumni Quad. This community is dedicated to promoting accessibility for the Deaf community and encouraging the learning of American Sign Language on campus.

Features of ASL Housing:

Located near the center of campus, Alumni Quad is a 30-second walk from two dining halls, and just a few minutes walk from Gampel Pavilion, the UConn Bookstore, the Rec Center, and Homer Babbage Library.

Residents will have the opportunity to participate in community and social events throughout the year, including movie nights, dinners, and game nights all held in sign language.

Residents will receive regular updates about new opportunities and events within the Connecticut Deaf community.
