Once students have been assigned, we will send out specific housing assignments and roommate information via your pratt.edu email in early July for Fall semester applications and early December for Spring semester applications. Below are important dates and other useful information to help you to begin planning for your transition to campus.
If you have not received your room assignment/roommate information in the timeframes listed above, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Move In Fall 2013
All students move in to their assigned buildings on the scheduled move in dates.
- All new international students is Sunday, August 18, 2013, starting at 9 AM.
- All new domestic students is Tuesday, August 20, 2013, starting at 9 AM.
- All continuing students is Friday AND Saturday, August 23 and 24, 2013.
Early arrivals cannot be accommodated prior to your scheduled move in date. We cannot guarantee that a student's room will be ready for an early arrival since our summer housing program dates are very close to fall housing dates. Contact email@example.com to inquire whether or not we can accommodate an early arrival request. Approved early arrivals must report to Residential Life and Housing, room 105 of Willoughby Hall between 9 AM and 4 PM for move in. Approved early arrivals coming in after 5 PM must report to the student's assigned building for move in. Early arrival fees will be assessed to any approved early arrivals.
Late Arrivals who plan to move in after the scheduled move in dates should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to inform us of your late arrival date and time. Failure to do so may result in your being reported as a No Show and cancellation of your room assignment. Late arrivals will be accommodated on non-move in days between 9 AM–4 PM in Residential Life and Housing, room 105 Willoughby Hall and after 5 PM in their assigned residence hall.
Mail and Packages
Students living on campus will be assigned individual campus mailboxes centrally located in our Mail Center. Included in your assignment email will be specific instructions on the proper format to use for your mail and packages. Students should provide this information to family members and others so that mail and packages are routed correctly. More information can be found on the Mail Center's webpages.
Theft and Fire Insurance
It is strongly recommended that all resident students have insurance coverage for their possessions. Pratt has made available to students and their families information from a leading residence hall student insurance carrier, National Student Services. They have a proven track record of providing quality, low cost individual coverage to students. Whether or not a student is covered under their parents homeowners policy, it is wise to keep an individual policy to cover things like: personal computers, stereos, televisions, clothing, books, cameras or any other valuables students keep in their room. Pratt does not carry individual insurance coverage for each students possession and in the unlikely event of theft, fire, flood or other accident, it is necessary that students are covered.
Coverages range in price from $26 per year for $2000 coverage and a $100 deductible for actual cash value premiums to $220 per year for $10,000 coverage and a $25 deductible for replacement cost premiums. For more information and to sign-up on-line or call National Student Services at 800-256-6774.
