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.

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.
