Athletics and Recreation

The Activities Resource Center (ARC), built in 1975, is home to the Cannoneers and the recreation, wellness, and intramural sports programs at Pratt Institute.  The ARC offers six multipurpose athletic courts that can be used interchangeably for basketball, tennis, and volleyball.  A four-lane 200-meter track lines the perimeter of the gym floor.  The ARC's activity areas and resources also include a studio room, a fitness center (weights and cardio machines), and a boxing and functional space. 

In the spring of 2019, Pratt Athletics became a NCAA Division III  member.  Thirteen of our teams compete in the Coast to Coast Conference (C2C),  men’s volleyball competes in the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC), and equestrian in the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA).  Pratt sponsors 15 intercollegiate sports teams.  Teams sponsored include men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s indoor/outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s volleyball and co-ed equestrian.

Pratt Rec is the recreation division of the Pratt Institute Athletics and Recreation Department—under the Student Affairs division—which annually serves over 150+ student-athletes, 2000+ Pratt students (non-student-athletes), and over 4000 additional faculty, staff, administration, alumni, and surrounding community members.

The Pratt Rec Division offers a multitude of fitness classes, virtual instructions, personal and group training opportunities, intramural offerings, tournaments, events, and various supportive measures to the Pratt Institute community to meet the vision of its mission statement, as well as the continued vision of offering access, opportunity, development, and creativity for overall well-being within the Pratt community. 

In addition, Pratt Rec offers various activity areas within the Activity Resource Center (ARC) located on the main Brooklyn campus. Various Pratt Rec fitness classes and events occur as well in a multitude of rooms and spaces on the Pratt Manhattan Campus (PMC). 

We are dedicated to providing the Pratt community with the resources, access, and experiences needed for all individuals to design their best project yet, themselves!
