Mudge House

Known for its beautiful architecture and traditional charm, Mudge is a co-ed community of 310 students with a live-in upperclass mentor program. Each spring, Mudge hosts a Dinner with the Deans and Faculty event, when more than 30 faculty and staff come to Mudge for a celebratory dinner with over 100 Mudge residents. Faculty get to know students better and students get to see their faculty in a different light. It's a great tradition that truly connects Mudge residents with the larger CMU community.

Located on Morewood Avenue, Mudge is a mansion originally built by the Mudge family of Pittsburgh who later donated it to the university. The first floor has a spacious lounge, a quiet study area, and a television room. Mudge House has two residence wings that overlook the garden courtyard.
