Does CMU have on-campus housing for graduate students?
CMU does not currently offer on-campus housing to Graduate Students. If this is something you would like to see CMU provide in the future, submit your story HERE so GSA can better advocate for services that directly affect our community.
How do I find an off-campus apartment?
Check out the listings on the CMU Off Campus Housing website (instructions for use HERE). For more expansive lists, you can use online apartment rental search services (such as apartments.com , realtor.com , zillow.com , or many more).
