Boss House-Housing Services - Carnegie Mellon University

Boss House

Boss is a first-year themed living house that students apply to live in because they are passionate about global citizenship, service, leadership, and/or wellness. While students from around the world choose to live in Boss, there is always a shared sense of camaraderie right from the start because of these shared values. Boss residents develop their leadership skills individually and through an active House Council and are eager to invest in the larger CMU community.

Consisting of prime double and prime single rooms with semi-private bathrooms, Boss is coed by room but residents share a bathroom with residents of the same gender. This residence has a large outdoor courtyard, a first-floor community lounge with recreation and television areas, study lounges, and laundry facilities.
