Visiting the Brooklyn Campus

Prospective students and their families are encouraged to visit Pratt’s Brooklyn campus by
(1) taking a campus tour, or
(2) scheduling an information session, or
(3) arranging a portfolio review in the spring, summer, or fall.

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.
