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.
