Carnegie Mellon University

There are so many benefits to living on campus.

As a current, transfer, or international student, you have a number of housing options available to you: on-campus housing, Greek housing, or off-campus-housing. After your first year, we hope you choose to continue living on campus, which, as research shows, significantly contributes to academic success and graduating on time. Specifically at Carnegie Mellon, living on campus provides:

  • A 24/7 community of support
  • A place where safety and security are top priorities
  • A residential experience that fosters personal development, meaningful engagement, and life-long relationships
  • Convenience to all academic buildings, the student center, and 30+ dining locations
  • Fully furnished rooms and spaces
  • All-inclusive living, including housing, utilities, cable, and Internet
  • Amenities such as laundry and fitness facilities
  • Freedom for travel over the summer months, as our Housing License Agreement is for the academic year only
  • Housing and dining accommodations for students with special needs related to a health concern
