Carnegie Mellon University offers a wide variety of housing options, including traditional residence halls, apartments, suites-style living, and full houses. Some buildings are designated exclusively for first-year students, some are primarily upper-class, and others are a mix of first-year and upper-class students.
University housing is available on-campus and in our Oakland community. All on-campus residential areas are located in close proximity to academic buildings. The Oakland community apartments are located within a 5–10 minute walk to campus.
The Career and Professional Development Center (CPDC) at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is a centralized career center staffed by a team of 24 enthusiastic, dedicated, and highly-educated professionals who orchestrate the career exploration, experiential learning, and career networking needs of students and alumni. The CPDC empowers students and alumni to optimize their professional and life potential through career exploration, experiential learning, and connections with employers and opportunities.
We also offer two layers of additional career advising for you: the undergraduate Career Peer Mentors and the Career Counseling Internship for Graduate Students. The staff and students work together to provide seamless, effective service for you.
You can always find something new in the city of Pittsburgh. Between the 88 neighborhoods and districts and the 10 colleges with 86,000 students in the area – there’s so much to explore and so many different types of people to meet along with things to do in Pittsburgh.
Oakland, Shadyside and Squirrel Hill are the closest neighborhoods to campus and easy to explore by foot. But if you’re looking to go beyond the nearby vicinity and have mapped out a plan to see more than the obvious, your Carnegie Mellon student ID will double as your bus pass throughout Allegheny County – including the Pittsburgh International Airport.
