Housing is guaranteed for all new freshman students. Those who meet the following deadlines are guaranteed housing in traditional first year student halls: May 1 for Fall applicants and November 1 for Spring applicants. Students who apply for housing after those dates may be housed in triple spaces both in first-year halls and in upper-class halls.
Upperclass and graduate housing is very limited and are available on a first-come first-served basis. Assignments and communication with new transfer and new graduate applicants will be done as soon as possible prior to the end of June.
Deposit forms are obtained from the Admissions Office when a student is accepted. The housing deposit, including the tuition deposit, must be received by the Admissions Office before a student can be scheduled for a room assignment.
Assignments will be made only when a student's application is complete. A completed application consists of:
• $300 Housing Deposit (instructions sent to all accepted students in the Accepted Student Guide)
• completed submission of housing preferences online (instructions sent via email, see timeline below)
Below is our email communication timeline for new students:
|Application term||Housing Preferences email||Housing Assignment email|
|2013-14 schoolyear||around second week in February for early accepts||first week in July|
|2013 Summer||around fourth week in March||three weeks before your requested check-in date|
|2014 Spring||around mid-November||second week in December|
All new students who have been accepted to Pratt and have deposited their tuition and housing deposits will be sent in the mail an acceptance packet. In that packet will be your Pratt OneKey online login credentials and instructions on how to access your pratt.edu email account.
It is vital that new students know how to access their pratt.edu email account as from this point forward, all assignment information and other updates will be sent via your pratt.edu email address.
In order to complete your online housing application process, you must know your OneKey login credentials and how to access your pratt.edu email account.
