Campus locations include the following:
Brooklyn (main campus): A 25-acre campus with 35 buildings, some historic, some contemporary, grassy plazas, and residence halls on campus makes Pratt a top choice for students looking for a traditional college experience in the context of an art and design school. Pratt is the only art, design and architecture college in New York City with an actual traditional college campus. All programs but the two-year associate degree programs and both the two and four-year construction management programs are located on the Brooklyn campus.
Manhattan: Pratt’s Manhattan campus is located in the exciting Chelsea area in a restored historic building.
Extension Campus: PrattMWP College of Art and Design is Pratt’s upstate New York extension campus in Utica. It offers the first two years of Pratt’s BFA programs in fine arts, photography, art and design education (teacher preparation), and communications design (graphic design, illustration, advertising art direction). There are many reasons why students choose PrattMWP, including a substantially lower cost. Information is available at www.mwpai.edu.
The deadline for the fall semester is January 5th. November 1st is Pratt’s non-binding early action deadline. Because there is an enrollment cap with strict limits on certain majors, students are encouraged to apply early if Pratt is their first choice. Pratt has a generous merit scholarship program; all applicants are considered.
