College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's a kind of hippi environment. I'm a sophomore it's pretty hard to meet friends. But it's very good academically with really good professors

Campus Housing: Its SO hard to get into living at the cheapest of the dorm buildings. Theres months of waiting lists so if you dont get it at first theres a good chance youre not going to live on campus. Even if you get it, the commute from the dorms to the actual school is about 30 minutes on the subway. The building is old and not so roomy but I ended up staying a place called Educational Housing Services and they gave me a room but theyre OVERPRICED and have too many rules.

Campus Housing: When I was in undergrad, I did not live in a dorm when I was in college. I lived at home with my parents and took the subway 40 minutes into Manhattan for classes. I lived close enough that I did not have to dorm.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.

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.
