Graduate StudentsWelcome 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. We currently anticipate having at least 50 spaces dedicated to graduate student housing. Space is still available. Graduate Student housing spaces are available in Morewood Gardens (traditional style residence hall) and Fairfax, Webster, and Shady Oak Apartments (apartment style living.) Students should be aware that most spaces are shared/double occupancy rooms/apartments - single rooms are extremely limited. We do NOT have any single occupancy (completely private) apartments – all of our apartments accommodate at least two people.
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/. 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.
Housing offers to graduate students are being made on a rolling basis, and will continue until all spaces are filled. Once all spaces are filled, graduate students may still submit an application but should be aware that they will be on a waitlist. For more information on the buildings that will house graduate students, visit http://www.cmu.edu/housing/residence-types/index.html. You can find pricing for all housing 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.
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.
