McGill House-Housing Services - Carnegie Mellon University

McGill House

McGill is the only all-women, mixed-class community at CMU. It engenders a relaxed, “walk right in and make yourself at home” kind of vibe; a place where it’s easy to let your guard down. McGill is a community of women supporting and empowering other women, as first-year students have the opportunity to be paired with an upper-class mentor.

Consisting of prime double and prime single rooms with semi-private bathrooms, McGill shares a large outdoor courtyard with Boss House and offers a first-floor community lounge with recreation and television areas, study lounges, and laundry facilities.
