Newly Admitted Graduate Students
We provide a variety of on-campus housing options available to single and married graduate students. About 50% of Caltech's graduate student population lives in campus housing. New students who submitted a housing application by our application deadline, April 30, 2017 and were willing to live in any graduate residence or can provide at least two eligible housing choices on their application form, were guaranteed an on-campus room their first year at Caltech.
Individuals who have not made prior arrangements with the Housing Office at least three business days in advance will be subject to a one-time, non-refundable $150.00 fee.
2017-2018 housing application forms and housing rates are available here:
While first-year students have priority to receive an on-campus room, continuing students are subject to a housing lottery each May. Continuing students who make the housing lottery cut-off have priority over new students to receive the room of their first choice.
