Campus Housing: It's not so great but livable

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is very limited and pricey. Most students live off campus or at home with family and commute to school. The amenities and resources of Hunter dorming are good quality, dorms have nice gyms and rooms.

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.
