WAIT. Before you think, “OMG. I’ve seen that done a million times, a million different ways,” stop. I promise you, you haven’t seen it quite like THIS before.


You see, Gallaudet is a university specifically for the deaf and hard of hearing community. It is a private university, based in Washington D.C., and we are about to learn a whole lot more about it!


We follow seven students as they try to traverse the roller coaster that is college life, while still protecting and maintaining their culture. I mean, college life is rough enough. It’s so easy to lose your identity and forget where you came from.

The show creator, Nyle DiMarco, has quite an accomplished past. He is deaf, himself. He was the first deaf contestant to appear on America’s Next Top Model, and he WON a season of Dancing with the Stars, making him the first deaf contestant ever to win the show.


He also happens to be an alumnus of Gallaudet University, so he is quite familiar with the ins and outs of the institution and the people that attend.

Deaf U is a coming-of-age documentary series following a tight-knit group of deaf students at Gallaudet University. As the group of friends navigate the high, lows, and hookups of college life together, their stories offer an unprecedented, unfiltered, and often unexpected look inside the Deaf community.


Deaf U is set to drop on Netflix October 9th, so get your binge watching clothes on, and get ready!!
