A hut is a primitive dwelling, which may be constructed of various local materials. Huts are a type of vernacular architecture because they are built of readily available materials such as wood, snow, ice, stone, grass, palm leaves, branches, hides, fabric, or mud using techniques passed down through the generations.

A hut is a building of a lower quality than a house but higher quality than a shelter and is used as temporary or seasonal shelter or in primitive societies as a permanent dwelling. Huts exist in practically all nomadic cultures. Some huts are transportable and can stand most conditions of weather.

Huts are used by shepherds when moving livestock between seasonal grazing areas such as mountainous and lowland pastures . They are also commonly used by backpackers and other travelers in rural areas. Huts have been built for purposes other than as a dwelling such as storage, workshops, and teaching.
