Additional Housing Options - Greek Housing and Off-Campus Housing
Greek Housing provides an opportunity for members of fraternities or sororities to live together. Greek housing rosters and the assignment of rooms is facilitated through the individual Greek chapter. Likewise, rates for Greek housing and Greek meal plans (where available) are coordinated through the chapter.
Greek members interested in living in Greek housing should speak to their chapter's President or House Manager. Greek house rosters are submitted to Housing and Dining Services through the Office of Student Life. Greek organizations tend to begin planning for the next academic year around the same time as Room Selection is occurring.
Current university housing residents who are thinking about living in Greek housing for the next academic year should know that Greek residents are not eligible to participate in Room Selection. Thus, students who choose to live in Greek housing and wish to later return to university housing are not eligible to select or be pulled-in through Room Selection and will need to apply through the Housing Wait-list application process. While we make every effort to accommodate all applicants, students on the housing wait-list are not guaranteed a housing assignment.
Many students enjoy the independence and convenience that is afforded by living on their own in an apartment or house in one of the communities surrounding Carnegie Mellon. Housing and Dining Services provides resources to individuals interested in pursuing off-campus housing through our Community Housing Services.
Community Housing Fair

Community Housing Services
Housing and Dining Services provides resources to students, faculty and staff looking for off-campus housing through our Community Housing Services web site. By clicking on the "Housing Registry" link found on the Community Housing site, students can search through off-campus housing listings that are posted by area landlords interested in renting to Carnegie Mellon students, faculty and staff.
These listings are updated regularly directly by the landlords, so check the site often for new listings. All members of the Carnegie Mellon community with an @andrew.cmu.edu email address is eligible to access the Housing Registry listings.
