First-Year Students-Housing Services - Carnegie Mellon University

Welcome newly admitted first-year students

Congratulations and welcome to Carnegie Mellon! Housing Services is here to help all new, incoming first-year students (and College of Fine Arts transfer students) navigate the housing application and room assignments process. This section of the website is your one-stop-shop for all information related to Housing for new first-year students.

  • The Fall 2016 Housing Application for new incoming students will be available in early March 2016.  In the meantime, you are welcome to familiarize yourself with the application and our building options! Remember, housing assignments are based on the date that your admissions deposit is received, so there is no rush to complete your housing application now.
  • New Fall 2016 transfer students (other than College of Fine Arts transfers) can submit the online upper-class housing application anytime after the application becomes available in March.
  • New graduate students or new upper-class students interested in living off-campus should visit our Community Housing Resources page.
