Helen Matusow-Ayres, Vice President for Student AffairsPratt Institute is a dynamic community of creative individuals living and working together. Our students are very serious about their work, but Pratt also provides many exciting opportunities to learn outside of the studio and the classroom. We are fortunate to be located in the greatest city in the world, providing unlimited resources. But students do not need to travel off campus for enrichment. Pratt provides its students with a full array of services, programs, and experiential learning opportunities focused on facilitating and supporting personal development, lifetime learning and success. We offer our students a home from which to venture out into the city at their own pace, with support and encouragement.

I encourage all students to take advantage of all that Pratt has to offer. The Student Affairs Office is located in the Main Building Room 008 on the Brooklyn campus. Starting in the Fall 2018 semester the Student Affairs Office on the Manhattan campus will be located on the seventh floor. Please visit us in person or browse the options on the Student Affairs area of pratt.edu. You can also learn more about how to get involved in campus life at Pratt's Engage page.
