Who We Are
Housing and Dining Services is committed to providing quality accommodations and food service for the Carnegie Mellon community. We believe it is a privilege to be a part of such an engaging educational community and we strive to provide resources and services that support our students in their daily lives.
University Housing has more to offer than just a space to sleep. It provides students the opportunity to make new friends, learn about other cultures and develop a deeper understanding of themselves. Students are immersed into a community of their peers where learning extends far beyond the classroom walls.
Currently we have 24 staff members in Housing and Dining Services as well as over 300 associates working in 33 dining venues around the campus. We also work closely with other departments to ensure a welcoming and safe environment for the campus community.
