A student walking through Pratt Institute campusPratt Institute maintains five residence halls accommodating approximately 1,000 students. The focus of our residential life program is on providing a comfortable yet challenging environment for students to become integral members of the campus community. This is fostered by educational approaches and programming. Pratt residence halls offer a variety of housing options, including rooms with and without kitchens, doubles, singles, and apartments. Pratt also offers campus meal plans for students who like the convenience of eating on-campus. More information on residential life.

On-Campus Residence Halls

Pratt offers a variety of living options for students. Explore our halls, read out on-campus living guides and learn what amenities await you. Our halls are staffed with professional, para-professional and student staff who are available to students who need assistance and to create an environment in the halls that promotes student learning and development, complementing and enhancing the Pratt experience. Pratt also offers a variety of meal plans to meet the needs of students. Students living in South Campus hall (Cannoneer, Pantas, Stabile and ELJ) are required to select one of our mandatory meal plans. Students in Willoughby and Grand Avenue are able to sign up for optional meal plans. Living on campus does not meet the needs of all students. To better meet the needs of those students who choose not to live on campus, off-campus resources are available.

Office of Residential Life

The mission of the Office of Residential Life and Housing is to efficiently and effectively administer a housing program in a learning centered environment that challenges and supports students to: enhance self-understanding, value community responsibility, and learn from their experiences. To that end, the Office of Residential Life and Housing holds the belief that student development and learning goes on outside the classroom, as well as inside the classroom. The policies, procedures and programs which are established and encouraged by the Office of Residential Life and Housing are those which enhance student learning and involvement outside the classroom. This means the department takes its role very seriously as guarantor of a residence hall atmosphere conducive to work and study. We also strive to provide an atmosphere in which students are encouraged to make informed decisions on their own, take responsibility for their actions, and learn from their experiences.

Graduate Housing

Pratt provides apartment-style graduate housing in the Grand Avenue Residence Hall; most graduate students live off-campus in a variety of housing options from apartments to brownstones and lofts, sharing with other students. These opportunities are listed through the Office of Residential Life.
