First-Year Students-Housing Services - Carnegie Mellon University

Welcome newly admitted first-year students

Congratulations and welcome to Carnegie Mellon! Housing Services is here to help all new, incoming first-year students (and College of Fine Arts transfer students) navigate the housing application and room assignments process. This section of the website is your one-stop-shop for all information related to Housing for new first-year students.

  • The Fall 2017 Housing Application for new incoming students is now available, and due by May 31.  Applications will be processed beginning June 1 in the order that the admissions office posts your admissions deposit.  Please be sure to familiarize yourself with the information on these pages as well as our building options before completing your application.
  • Remember, housing assignments for first-year students are based on the date that your admissions deposit is received, so there is no rush to complete your housing application now.
  • New Fall 2017 transfer students (other than College of Fine Arts transfers) can submit the online upper-class housing application.
  • New graduate students or new upper-class students interested in living off-campus should visit our Community Housing Resources page.
