Campus Life


The Carnegie Mellon experience doesn’t end inside the classroom. As a Tartan, you’ll meet and learn from a geographically and academically diverse group of people during your time as an undergraduate student.

If you have questions about campus life, student life, or going to college in Pittsburgh and would like to ask a current student, email with the subject line “Student Insight” and we’ll connect you with a student ambassador.
