Prospective Students

Welcome to Housing Services! We are so excited that you are considering Carnegie Mellon for your academic experience and we know that housing plays an important role in shaping that experience.


Carnegie Mellon guarantees housing for all new, incoming first-year students. Housing for undergraduate transfer students is based on availability and prospective transfer students are encouraged to apply for housing as soon as they accept admission to Carnegie Mellon.

Once you are admitted to Carnegie Mellon and you have paid your admissions deposit, be sure to check out the information in the Incoming Students section.


For prospective graduate students, we offer a limited number of spaces in university housing. Graduate students interested in on-campus apartment options can learn more in the Graduate Students section. For more information or to apply, contact

Graduate students can use the Community Housing resource page to explore off-campus housing options in the Pittsburgh community, learn more about the neighborhoods surrounding Carnegie Mellon, and find valuable information about off-campus living.
