Campus Tours

Pratt’s beautifully landscaped 25-acre residential campus is a surprise to most visitors who cannot believe it exists in the middle of Brooklyn. Visitors describe it as a quiet oasis with a traditional college feeling within one of the leading art and design schools in the world. Pratt’s Brooklyn and Manhattan campus visit options are listed below. Program locations are below as well.

Visiting The Brooklyn Campus

Prospective students and their families are invited to visit Pratt’s Brooklyn campus for a tour. Please note: tours are not offered mid-December through mid-January, during Pratt’s Spring Break, and on Federal holidays, as classes are not in session and student tour guides are not on campus. 

Tours book quickly and must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance. Reservations are required to maintain a safe environment for our guests and campus community. Tour groups are capped at 30 visitors to ensure an engaging experience. If your preferred tour is full, please contact to be added to our standby list. Standby requests will be informed if they can be accomodated one week prior to tour dates.

All Brooklyn campus tours leave from the Admissions Office on the 2nd floor of Myrtle Hall. Myrtle Hall is located across the street from the main campus on Willoughby Avenue; make the first left into the Willoughby Residence Hall parking lot. Myrtle Hall is directly ahead (modern glass building) and located at 215 Willoughby Ave.

Pratt also offers information sessions (undergraduate and graduate) and portfolio reviews (undergraduates only) in the spring, summer and fall. All of Pratt’s various visit options are listed online. 

Scheduling a Tour

Pratt offers major-specific or general tours each week (with the exception of finals weeks and semester breaks). All of our campus tours will cover general campus content and then break into major-specific groups, so you only need to register for one tour.

There are two tours offered each day – at 9:30am and 1:30pm*. A 15 minute info session will precede a two hour tour. Student tour guides will be available post-tour for conversation and questions.

*From May 20th through August 16th, the 1:30pm tour will be offered at 1pm to accomodate the Institute’s Summer Hours policy.
