Housing Policies

All Pratt students who choose to Study Abroad are responsible for securing their own housing- either on-campus or off-campus housing*. The host institution provides a multitude of resources for making housing arrangements and students are advised to check in with the host institution's website.

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

If students have chosen to study abroad and require Pratt housing upon their return to Pratt, they must contact Pratt Residential Life and Housing to amend their housing contracts by the outlined deadlines.
