Living @ Hunter: Student Housing
How to Apply
Submit your application for any of Hunter's Residence Halls to the Office of Residence Life. Unfortunately, due to the overwhelming demand for affordable housing in New York City, the Office of Residence Life receives far more requests for housing than can be filled. If your application is not accepted, you will be placed on a wait list.
Please note that the Bursar's Office does not make application decisions or initiate refunds. After those decisions are made by the Office of Residence Life, the Bursar's Office will process your payments or distribute refunds.
The College has three (3) residence halls.
1) The Brookdale Campus is located at the Brookdale Health Sciences Campus, 425 East 25th Street, between First Avenue and the FDR Drive.
2) The 92nd Street Residence is located at 1395 Lexington Avenue, just 3 blocks from Central Park and the Museum Mile. You must sign a Student Financial Agreement before moving in.
3) The 97th Street Residence is located 1760 Third Avenue, just blocks away from Central Park, the Whitney Museum and Serendipity. You must sign a Student Occupancy Agreement before moving in.
Each Residence has different rates, fees and payment due dates.
For questions regarding residence hall payments, please call 212.772.4405, or email
Dorm charges are subject to change without notice, as approved by the City University of New York (CUNY) Board of Trustees. In the event of an increase, payments you have already made will be treated as a partial payment. You will be notified about the amount owed and the payment deadline.

Fees, Fines and Penalties
All of your bills must be settled before you move into your room. If you owe fees, or need to pay fines, the Bursar's Office will place a negative Service Indicator on your CUNYfirst account. This "stop" will also prevent you from registering for an upcoming term, or obtaining official Hunter College documents, such as your student records and transcripts.
