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 is due on May 31, and applications will be processed beginning June 1 in the order that the admissions office posts your admissions deposit.  In the meantime, you are welcome to familiarize yourself with the application and our building options!
  • Remember, housing assignments for first-year students 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.
