West Wing House-Housing Services - Carnegie Mellon University

West Wing

West Wing (and its neighbor Resnik House) is a hub for student leaders. The amenities are top-notch and it's close to the Cohon Center and major academic buildings. West Wing and Resnik are a great fit for students who are super engaged in their academic work and active in campus life and activities. Residents tend to retain their rooms once they have the opportunity to live in Resnik and West Wing. As a result, West Wing and Resnik are close communities with lots of familiar faces from year to year.

West Wing is co-ed, but each suite is single gender. West Wing and Resnik share a large television room, recreation room, and computer cluster located on the ground floor of West Wing and a fitness center on the Mezzanine level of Resnik House.
