Studio Access Program

Update on Studio Access (as of May 10, 2021)

Reservations are now open for limited occupancy studio access beginning Monday May 24th.

Due to COVID limitations, we are only accepting reservations from previously approved users with valid memberships. We hope to begin approving new users later this year.

In accordance with Safe Start guidance for Washington State, new policies and procedures will be in effect for all users. Please familiarize yourself with the required protocols below and studio-specific protocols.

Safe Start Studio Access Program  

Together we can protect the health of all users and prevent the spread of COVID-19. The following Safe Start limitations comply with Washington State’s Safe Start guidelines and will be applied in conjunction with Pratt’s Safe Start COVID-19 Exposure Mitigation & Response Policy. Preexisting Studio User Guides, which dictate the proper use of facilities and equipment, will remain in effect as well.  

We will be counting on all users to follow all guidelines without exception. Failure to comply would result in immediate suspension of access privileges.
