Housing Policies

All Pratt students who choose to study abroad are responsible for securing their own housing- either on-campus or off-campus*. Many host institutions provide a multitude of resources for making housing arrangements, which can be found on the institution's website.  

*Pratt students who study at Musashino University and the Bauhaus are required to sign up for Pratt on-campus housing.

If students have chosen to study abroad in the Fall and require Pratt housing upon their return, they must apply for Spring housing in October using the Pratt Housing Application

Students studying abroad in the Spring may apply to reclaim their room for the following Fall Semester during the Housing Application Process in March. 

Students who are studying abroad for the Fall semester must cancel their Housing Contract in writing and abide by Pratt's provided schedule.

Cancellation Penalty Schedule
Upon receipt of a completed application and an assignment made by the Office of Residential Life, the student is automatically charged for the cost of the room.
Cancellation requests received and approved by the Office of Residential Life, either in-person or electronically, are assessed based on the cancellation penalties and are applied to the student's account.

May 1, 2023 to May 31, 2023: $300 Penalty
