Access to Pratt Programs and Activities

The Pratt campus and many of its buildings are historic in nature and thus not all spaces on campus are readily accessible and the accessibility of certain buildings and spaces on campus may not be immediately apparent to campus visitors. However, all programs, services and activities will be accessible and Pratt will accommodate any individuals with a disability who wish to avail themselves of any of its programs or activities.

To facilitate ease of access to all programs and activities, you have the option to indicate if you require an accessible space, have any mobility restrictions (e.g. inability/difficulty navigating stairs), or have any similar considerations or concerns, when registering in advance or scheduling an appointment for any program or activity on campus. Appropriate measures will then be taken to ensure that the relevant programs or activities are readily accessible with the least amount of delay or inconvenience to you.

Students should contact the Director of the Learning/Access Center, Elisabeth Sullivan,, (718.636.3711) in advance, according to the procedures for requesting accommodations established by the Learning/Access Center. Requests for accommodation should be made as far in advance as reasonably possible to allow sufficient time to make any necessary modifications to ensure the relevant classes, programs, or activities are readily accessible. The Learning/Access Center is available to Pratt students, confidentially, with additional resources and information to facilitate full access to all campus programs and activities and provide support related to any other disability-related matters, and is located in the ISC Building, Room 104.

Employees should contact Assistant Vice President of Human Resources, Steven Riccobono,, (718.636.3787) reasonably in advance of an appointment or program, to allow sufficient time to make any necessary modifications to ensure the relevant programs or activities are readily accessible.  Human Resources is available to Pratt employees, confidentially, needing a reasonable accommodation or regarding any other needs or issues related to accessibility on campus and is located in Myrtle Hall, 2nd Floor.

Security personnel, located at a booth inside the main gate at 200 Willoughby Avenue, are also available to assist visitors with directions, locating accessible routes, or providing any other assistance in navigating the campus grounds.
