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 2015-2016 academic year.  We currently anticipate having approximately 50 spaces dedicated to graduate student housing.   Graduate Student housing spaces will be available in Neville Apartments (4 to 5 occupants per apartment, in single bedrooms) and Shirley Apartments (2 occupants per apartment in double occupancy bedrooms.)  We do NOT have any single occupancy (completely private) apartments – all of our apartments accommodate at least two people.  All graduate resident applicants must be enrolled as full-time students at Carnegie Mellon for the academic year.  At this time, we are not able to accommodate requests to house non-student family members.

Graduate students who have their Andrew IDs are encouraged to complete a Housing application at  Priority for all graduate student spaces will be given to students who will be here for the full academic year (both fall and spring semester.)  Any remaining vacancies will be offered to students needing housing for only the Fall semester sometime in mid to late June. 

Assignment offers to graduate students will be 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   You can find pricing for all housing options on our website here:

If you're ready to apply, go to 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

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 CMU Off-Campus Housing (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.
