The Brookdale Residence accommodates undergraduate, matriculated Hunter College students. The majority of the rooms at the Brookdale Campus are single-occupancy rooms, and are furnished with a single bed, dresser, desk, and desk chair. However, residents do share common bathrooms, showers, and a kitchen located on every floor. The typical single room size is 10’ x 12’. There is a limited amount of double rooms, suites, studios, and bedroom shares available for upperclassmen students. Although windows are equipped with mini-blinds, students may also supply their own curtains (windows are 51 ½” tall x 54 ½” across). Residents may buy or rent small refrigerators (no larger than 4.5 cubic feet) for their rooms. Please make sure to see the Living at Hunter handbook for a list of prohibited items.
In addition, each floor also provides a common lounge for study and socializing. The lounges are equipped with living room furniture as well as cable TV and a VCR for your entertainment. All of our floors have wireless internet access. If you do not have a personal computer, there is a game room on the first floor with computers available for study and e-mail. The Health Professions Library is also located on the Brookdale Campus.
You may view the photo gallery, which contains floor plans and photographs of rooms and other facilities.
