Only students who are enrolled as full-time Undergraduates at Hunter College are eligible to reside at the Brookdale Residence Hall. Undergraduates must enroll in and maintain a full-time course load of 12 credit hours.
Unfortunately, housing is not guaranteed. The Brookdale Residence Hall houses over 600 students, and we receive many more requests than we can accommodate.
Yes, as the wait list is only kept for the semester. You must reapply for each semester.
Yes, but to be eligible for Summer Housing at the Brookdale Campus you must be a Living@Hunter resident, a CUNY student, or a student from another college taking a CUNY course over the summer, or an student enrolled in an internship for credits at your home college. Please visit the Summer Housing section of our website for more details.
Our campus is open 365 days a year. Students staying on for the Spring semester are allowed to stay during the December and January intersession. Summer is a separate application process. Summer is considered a separate term and is not included in the Fall/Spring Academic Year.
Most rooms at the Brookdale Campus Residence are single occupancy and are furnished with a single bed, dresser, desk, and desk chair. There are between 10 and 20 rooms that are double occupancy. Residents do share common bathrooms, showers, and a kitchen located on every floor. The typical room size is 10’ x 12’. 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 small refrigerators (no larger than 4.5 cubic feet) for their rooms. Microwave ovens are not permitted in the rooms. You may also view the photo gallery, which contains floor plans and photographs of rooms and other facilities.
Can I bring in my own furniture?
Unfortunately, you may only keep the furniture provided by the school. Anything else will constitute a Fire Safety Violation.
Yes, you are allowed to keep a small refrigerator in your room- no larger than 4.5 cubic ft.
No. However, there is a kitchen on every floor where residents can prepare their own meals.
The Residence Hall is located in a good neighborhood, but it is close to a number of offices and buildings that are not busy at night. Therefore, we urge students to exercise caution when walking in the neighborhood, especially at night, and to keep to the busy streets. The Residence Hall building is staffed by Hunter Public Safety personnel 24 hours per day.
All occupancy requirements are enumerated in the “Living at Hunter: Brookdale Campus” guide.
Please read these carefully as some violations may result in loss of housing privileges.
