There are a couple of ways to apply for on-campus housing. They will vary depending upon whether the student will be new to campus housing, continuing students returning to on-campus housing, or in need of housing only for summer courses.

Students new to campus will begin the housing application process as part of their admissions process to the Institute. Once accepted, students need to submit the enrollment deposit. This will initiate the process so they will receive their OneKey login credentials needed to access Institute web services that includes email account access and the online housing application.

  1. Students get accepted to Pratt
  2. Students submit their Enrollment Deposit to confirm their acceptance at; students may submit their housing deposit at this time as well
  3. Students receive their OneKey credentials (username/password)
  4. Students apply for housing at

Access to the housing application requires the OneKey credentials.

Please keep the deposit payment confirmation email, and the Reference Number to use in your online housing application.

It is of vital importance that you access your Pratt email from this point forward as all official communication will be sent to this email address. You can access your email by going to and logging in with your email address and then authenticating with your OneKey credentials.

When completing the online housing application, students will have the opportunity to state a specific roommate preference, indicate room type preferences and/or bathroom layout preferences, and give personal lifestyle preferences. While we will make all efforts to grant housing preferences, please understand that space is limited and we cannot guarantee that all preferences will be met. The order in which students are assigned is determined by the date a student submits their housing application.

All new freshmen are guaranteed housing with priority for space given to students who deposit by May 1 and complete their housing application by June 1. New transfers and graduate students are housed as long as space is available.

Continuing students on the other hand will apply for housing for the following academic year through the annual Returning Student Room Selection process each April.

Summer housing applications will become available mid-March. and will be available on
