Newly Admitted Graduate Students 2020-2021
We provide a variety of on-campus housing options available to single, couples and family graduate students. About 60% of Caltech's graduate student population lives in campus housing. New students who submit a housing application by our application deadline, May 3, 2020 and are willing to live in any graduate residence or can provide at least two eligible housing choices on their application form, are guaranteed a room their first year at Caltech.
2020-2021 housing application forms and housing rates are available here:

While first-year students have priority to receive a 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.
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.
