Students on Pratt Institute campus

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 offered Monday through Friday from March through mid-December. 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.

Tours are offered at 10am and 2pm only.

  1. ALL guests and visitors must present a photo ID and proof of vaccination (e.g., CDC card—hard copy or picture, Excelsior Pass) to Pratt Security upon arrival at the admissions office, located at 215 Willoughby Ave, Brooklyn, New York, 11205. All guests must be fully vaccinated. You are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after you have received a second dose in a two-dose vaccine series or two weeks after you have received a single-dose vaccine.  You must present a photo ID along with your vaccine proof. Your vaccine must be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or by the World Health Organization (WHO). Visitors who do not meet these requirements will not be allowed to stay in the building or tour campus. We thank you in advance for your understanding as we work to keep you and the Pratt community safe. 

  2. All guests must attest that they are currently experiencing no symptoms and

    are not actively in quarantine or isolation due to a positive test result, exposure, or recent travel.

  3. 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.

Please note that if you are a high school art class or other group interested in scheduling a visit, email visit@pratt.edu or call our office at 718.636.3779. Group tours are for high school groups in grades 10–12 and are offered on Wednesdays only. We do not meet with middle or elementary school groups.

Student-guided tours of Pratt's main campus include most undergraduate art and design studios, undergraduate architecture facilities, dining halls, career services, a first-year residence hall room (if available), athletic resource center, and library. Tours take approximately one and half hours. Please note that tours are general, and they are not designed to cover financial aid information or information about specific majors.

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.
