Finding Housing In Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh has a vibrant housing rental market due to the large number of colleges and universities located in the downtown and east areas of the cities. All Carnegie Mellon graduate students live in off-campus apartments and many undergraduate students chose to as well. Students are encouraged to start their housing searches as early as possible since the demand for housing in the communities surrounding Carnegie Mellon tend to be very high. However, there are a lot of resources available to assist you in finding an apartment.

The Housing Registry

The Housing Registry allows anyone with an @andrew.cmu.edu email address to access vacancy listings which are posted directly by the landlords themselves. Many students have great success with finding housing from the Housing Registry. However, students should know that Carnegie Mellon does not visit or inspect any of the properties listed on the site.
