Residence Types

Carnegie Mellon University offers a wide variety of housing options, including traditional residence hall rooms, apartments, suites and even full houses. Some buildings are designated exclusively for first-year students, some are primarily upper-class and some are a mix of first-year and upper-class students. Check out the building locations in our campus map.

University housing is available on-campus and in our Oakland Community. All on-campus residential areas are located in close proximity to academic buildings. The Oakland Community Apartments are located within a 5–10 minute walk to campus. The university’s shuttle services these areas on a regularly scheduled basis.
