First-Year Students-Housing Services - Carnegie Mellon University

Welcome newly admitted first-year students

Congratulations and welcome to Carnegie Mellon! This site was designed to help new, incoming first-year students (and College of Fine Arts transfer students) navigate all of the important information surrounding the housing application and room assignments process. This 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 will be available online no later than the first week of March 2015.

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.
