This fall, Carnegie Mellon upperclassmen will have a new option for housing: Clyde House.

Director of Housing Services Tom Cooley has confirmed the new housing location, stating that the residence will be a “Global Living Learning Community” in a renovated building located diagonally across from Shady Oak apartments at 624 Clyde St. The building will have three floors, with a possible lower level, and will house 28-34 efficiency apartments.

There will be five community spaces located in the building: one dedicated study lounge, three common areas, and one kitchen with an island-style counter in the center.

The application for living in Clyde House describes the building as “an apartment style residential community for students with a global curiosity, who are committed to deepening their own intercultural competency, and who have an interest in developing a mutual understanding of their responsibilities to be active global citizens seeking to bring change to the world they can influence.”

Apartments will house two to three people in a style similar to that of the Residence On Fifth. The building is scheduled to be fully renovated by Aug. 1, and the application to apply to live in Clyde House is separate from normal housing selection. The application is currently live at http://bit.ly/1gXqYPI.
