4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing at Hunter College is extremely convenient and affordable. The social atmosphere is inviting and the living conditions are comfortable.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Not the cleanest dorm and hard to get a room.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I have never lived on campus although it is available but I have checked out information about living on campus and well It is somewhat expensive and I would not doubt that this school being in the city is most probably going to have very small rooms. Also not anyone could just get a room in Hunter College , there is always those who have the priority to do so such as those who are in a certain program or those who are involved in sports. so you could be waiting from 6 months and on and even so you are not always guaranteed a room .

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Scholars get priority for choosing a dorm, then a select number of upperclassmen. 97th St. dorms serve about 100 Hunter students, and students from other schools. It offers doubles and triples. 92nd St. serves about 30 Hunter students. Brookdale is older/not air conditioned, but has a much closer community and only houses Hunter students, especially Macaulay students. It serves a few hundred Hunter students. However it's being phased out in 2015 (?)

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: For the amount paid, the housing options are fair (especially considering the location).

Hunter's dorms are about a 20- to 30-minute drive away from main campus. The dorms are part of the Brookdale Health Sciences campus, and all of the rooms are single-occupancy rooms furnished with a bed, dresser, desk, and chair. While students may not experience bonding with a roommate, residents share bathrooms, and a kitchen is located on every floor, so students have their own space but can easily mix with other students when they want to. The dorm staff does try to build a sense of community with monthly meetings and activities.

The dorms have an indoor swimming pool, tennis court, and bowling alley, as well as a convenient location near the East River. The dorm also has a small cafeteria that's open during the day; other than that, students are expected to cook their own meals. While the dorms are relatively affordable, only a select few students' applications are accepted since space is limited. The dorm population consists of students in the honors program, athletes, foreign exchange students, and a few out-of-state students. Space in the dorms is only guaranteed for two years, after which students have to find apartments near Hunter or in other boroughs.

Did You Know?
Because space is limited, priority for housing is given to students on scholarship and on athletic teams, as well as returning residents. Then, priority is determined by class rank and the date the application is received.
