Graduate Students-Housing Services - Carnegie Mellon University

Graduate Students

Welcome to Housing Services at Carnegie Mellon University and congratulations on your acceptance!

On-Campus Graduate Housing

Housing Services is currently offering on-campus housing to a limited number of graduate students for the 2014-2015 academic year.  Graduate students who have their Andrew IDs are encouraged to complete a Housing application as soon as possible at https://starrez.housing.cmu.edu/StarRezPortal/. We currently anticipate having at least 50 spaces dedicated to graduate student housing.  Students applying now should be aware that we anticipate most vacancies to be in Morewood Gardens, which is a traditional residence-hall style building, in double occupancy rooms. (Some spaces are also available in Fairfax Apartments, Webster Apartments, and Shady Oak Apartments.)  Students may complete the housing application without obligation - you won't be asked to commit until the point that you are given a housing offer. We understand that you are probably looking for housing through a variety of sources.

Offers for early applicants will begin in late April, and then on a rolling basis as spaces become available.  Many applicants may not hear anything until May or later depending on how many spaces we have left. We'll send periodic updates to the remaining waitlist as spaces begin to fill. For more information on the buildings that will house graduate students, visit http://www.cmu.edu/housing/residence-types/index.html.  Please note that single rooms are extremely limited, and are only currently available in Webster Hall and Shady Oak Apartments. We do NOT have any single occupancy (private) apartments – all of our apartments accommodate at least two people. You can find pricing for these options on our website here: http://www.cmu.edu/housing/rates-and-fees/index.html.

If you're ready to apply, go to https://starrez.housing.cmu.edu/StarRezPortal/. You will need a valid Andrew ID and password to log into the application.

We also offer off-campus housing resources available through out Community Housing Services http://www.cmu.edu/housing/community-housing/finding-housing/index.html.


Community Housing

Many of our graduate students live in off-campus houses and apartments in the many neighborhoods surrounding the university. Public transportation and university shuttle buses make many nearby communities extremely accessible to the campus.

Housing Services does provide some local area information, resource links and the Housing Registry (a listing of apartments posted by area landlords) which can be found in the Community Housing section.

Of course, if we can be of any further assistance, we would be delighted at the opportunity. We invite you to contact us about your housing questions and concerns as needed throughout your attendance at Carnegie Mellon University.
