The Hunter College Residences are home to approximately 800 of Hunter's 23,000 students. The application process is highly competitive; therefore, we recommend that students complete the housing application as early as possible.
How to Apply
The Fall 2016-Spring 2017 Residence Hall Application will be available online to students mid-March.
Eligibility and Room Assignment
Only a limited number of students have the opportunity to live in the Residences. We receive many more requests for housing than we can accommodate, and cannot guarantee housing to every student. The current policy for assignment of rooms provides priority status for returning residents and for students who have been accepted into special academic and scholarship programs.
Each residence hall is scholarship priority access, meaning that many of our residents become eligible for a Hunter Residence Hall as part of a specific scholar program. Some scholar programs are associated with specific residence halls. Although limited in number, rooms are also available for students who apply through the general application process.
If you are not selected to receive a room, you will be placed on the waiting list. Your position on the waiting list is dependent upon a number of factors, including your priority status, and available rooms.
Living@Hunter Residence Halls are reserved for full-time students only. You must be enrolled in and successfully complete 12 credit hours (undergraduate) and you must maintain a GPA 2.0 or above each semester in order to continue to live in the Residence Halls.
Throughout the year we provide tours at each of our residences. Tour schedules change every semester depending on office hours and the academic calendar.
