Visiting Pratt as a Graduate Student
There are several ways for graduate students to visit the Brooklyn campus including attending an information session, scheduling a campus tour, or visiting with your prospective department. You may also visit on your own any day including weekends. Some buildings will not be open on the weekends, however. The information sessions are hosted by your prospective department chairperson and usually include a tour of the department. If you are unable to visit in person, we hope you will view our virtual tour. Please note that Brooklyn campus tours are not available from December 15 to January 21.
International Visits: We will be visiting India and Korea and China this year and our admissions counselors are seeing prospective undergraduate and graduate students and families by appointment. High school students and college transfers may bring their portfolios for review if desired. We do not review graduate portfolios other than at Graduate Portfolio Days. See below.
There are two ways to visit Pratt's Manhattan campus. You may attend an information session or you may arrange an appointment with the chairperson or admissions coordinator for that department. You can find contact information for the department in our campus directory.
