2 College Junior

Parking: I personally take public transportation to and from school. But I have friends who are constantly complaining about how they can never find any parking.

1 College Freshman

Parking: I'm fairly positive we don't even have parking with Hunter, but driving in NYC is always a no-go.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Better off taking public transportation. Middle of Manhattan.

3 College Freshman

Parking: One doesn't need a car because Hunter is in NYC, so public transportation is easily accessible and way more convenient. However, if you were to use your car, you would have difficulty finding a spot (as with most of the city), or have to park it in a garage which can be on the expensive side.

2 College Junior

Parking: Theres really no parking the school is in manhattan. Trains and taxis are your best bet.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Parking in Manhattan is a joke. Unless you have hundreds of dollars to shell out every few weeks to park your car in a garage or plan to dash out of class every half-hour to escape the meter maid giving you a ticket, it's best to leave your car at home and use the MTA public transportation like everybody else. Most students at Hunter don't drive to school, and if they do, they park in Queens or Harlem and then take the 6 or F train a few stops to Hunter.

There is a garage opposite of Hunter, and there are a lot of meters around campus, but since the College is located in the middle of the Upper East Side, these accommodations are both expensive and time-consuming. Hunter does not have any special arrangements with any garages, so students who choose to bring cars to school have to navigate through these problems themselves.
