There was much rancor recently when Pratt announced it would restrict its campus to students and faculty. The university has long described the grounds as an "urban oasis" for the community, so locals are surprised about the sudden change. Some speculated that Pratt couldn't legally restrict access, because city streets were absorbed by the campus in the '50s. Well, The Local did some digging and learns that there is in fact no such requirement. Pratt can and will exclude you.
