Where to Park
Parking on the Pratt campus requires all members of the campus community to possess and display parking permits. Parking is on a first-come basis. Student parking is permitted in the Willoughby Hall, Stabile Hall, and Cannoneer Court lots only. Faculty and staff may park in these lots as well. The Main parking lot, located just inside the Main Entrance to the campus, is reserved for Faculty and Staff on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is no overnight parking in any lot on campus unless approved by Public Safety. Several spaces in this lot are allocated for visitor parking. Visitor spaces are allocated and reserved and will be strictly enforced.

Storing a vehicle on Pratt property for personal reasons is strictly prohibited. It is a violation of this policy for a permitted vehicle to remain on Pratt property while the permit holder engages in non-Pratt-related business. Anyone needing to leave their vehicle on Pratt property because of emergency or other circumstances must apply in writing to the Department of Public Safety at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The permit holder assumes all responsibility for any damage and liabilities incurred to the vehicle while parked on Pratt property, including, but not limited to, theft, vandalism, damage to, or loss of, the vehicle or personal property contained in the vehicle. Pratt is not liable for personal injury, damage, theft, or property loss arising from the exercise of parking privileges.
