A variety of living options exist for students. With few exceptions, students have the opportunity to progress through a variety of increasingly more independent housing options:
- The primary first year freshman residence halls are Pantas, Stabile, and Emerson Place
- Sophomore continuing and new transfer students' primary residences are Willoughby Hall and Esther Lloyd-Jones
- New and continuing graduate students reside in Grand Avenue Residence and Willoughby Halls
- Continuing upper class undergraduates reside in Esther Lloyd-Jones, Willoughby, and the Townhouses.
The progression of on-campus living exposes students to increasingly more independent housing options. This progression better prepares them for living off-campus either in their upper years at Pratt or after graduation.
All residence hall students are provided with a bed (twin extra-long), a drafting table or desk, a chair, and a dresser. In addition, rooms in Stabile, Emerson Place, Esther Lloyd-Jones, and Pantas are furnished with a microwave/refrigerator/freezer unit. Students living in those buildings are required to be on a yearly meal plan. Willoughby and Grand Avenue residents are provided refrigerator, stove, and dining table. Students in Willoughby and Grand Avenue are able to sign up for optional meal plans.
All residence halls are equipped with window coverings, 24-hour security guard coverage, cable television, and Internet service via student supplied ethernet cable.
Emerson Place, Stabile, and Pantas Hall are air conditioned. Students in Grand Avenue and Willoughby Hall can bring their own through-wall air conditioner.
