Magnetization measurements of URu2Si2 have been performed under hydrostatic pressures. The superconducting transition temperature decreases linearly with pressure up to 1.1 GPa and disappears above 1.5 GPa. The hysteretic magnetization shows characteristic behaviors at high pressures, suggesting that the pinning properties are changed due to the switch of the normal state to the antiferromagnetic state.
