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. Tours are not offered mid-December through mid-January. Tours book quickly and must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance. Reservations are required. Please note, once our tour registration has reached capacity, we are unable to accommodate additional requests.

Scheduling a Tour

Tours are offered at 10am and 2pm only.

Tours of Pratt’s main campus are student-guided and are approximately one and a half hours long. Tours are general; they are not designed to cover financial aid information or in-depth information about specific majors. Tours include some undergraduate classrooms and facilities, dining halls, student life, career services, the library, and residence life information. Please note we are unable to tour a room within our residence halls at this time.

Group tours: If you are a high school art class or other group interested in scheduling a visit, email Group tours are for high school groups in grades 10–12 and are offered on Wednesdays only. We are not able to accommodate middle or elementary school groups.

Graduate students: Although you are welcome to join a Brooklyn campus tour, please note that tours do not include graduate facilities. We recommend that you contact your department directly to schedule a visit or join an information session. View graduate visit options.

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.

All guests visiting campus agree to wearing an appropriate face covering or mask which covers the nose and mouth, or a full face shield, at all times while on Pratt Institute’s property and agree to follow all laws and regulations established by the State of New York and the City of New York.
