Pratt Intranet

The Pratt Intranet houses department specific information that is not available publicly and requires OneKey authentication to view.


Pratt’s Learning Management System allows students and faculty access to each course they are taking or teaching each semester. Faculty can share important information like syllabi, assignments, and resources through the LMS.

Online Tutorials

We offer an Online Tutorial section with tips, tricks, tutorials and FAQs for many of Pratt's online networks aimed to support efforts in teaching and learning. We are also creating animated videos to help Pratt students navigate basic situations on campus, such as obtaining a Pratt ID Card.

Pratt TV

Pratt TV is the collection of digital displays mounted throughout Brooklyn’s campus, which feature both original and livestreamed content. These televisions feature promotional content related to a department’s channel, and are integrated with Pratt Alerts. There are currently over 60 displays with many department-specific channels.

Pratt Commons

Pratt Commons is an online environment where Pratt faculty, staff, and students can discuss, collaborate, and share their work. Pratt Commons hosts a total of 132 websites covering academics, student services, extra-curricular activities, and various affinity groups.

Pratt Policy Portal

The Pratt Policy Portal, located within Pratt’s Intranet, captures official policies and procedures relating to all areas of Pratt Institute. We currently house over 60 policies that are searchable, printable and digitally available with Pratt OneKey credentials. The portal hopes to increase consistency and transparency regarding policies and procedures at Pratt, and are administered and approved through the office of Institutional Research.

The account is active for 2 years, and users will receive an email 30 days prior to deactivation.

Working with the Accessibility Committee and partnering with Guidekick, we have recently completed a one-year development process for ADA compliant 3D touchscreen kiosks with 2,700 data points encompassing Pratt’s Brooklyn campus. This interface allows quick access to buildings, offices, academic departments, sculptures, security information, and even a searchable personnel directory. It also allows students to search for particular courses displaying the professor, building location, room number, and time that the course meets. Accessibility pathways are animated and illustrated from your particular starting point throughout the interface. Visit or our 3D touchscreen kiosks throughout campus.
