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 housing application for newly admitted students starting classes in the Fall 2015 semester is now available.

New Fall 2015 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.
