Emergency Support for Students

Priority: Informational

Emergency Support for Students

Coronavirus Emergency Assistance Fund. Students who have lost wages, have unexpected medical costs, or have other financial needs related to the coronavirus crisis are encouraged to fill out an application.   Please contact the Dean of Students with any related questions.

Long-term technology loans are available, thanks to the support of several generous donors, to ensure that all students have access to remote instruction.  To request a long-term laptop loan, please fill out the request form.   Students, if you haven’t already done so, please complete the Technology Survey you received from Student Affairs to help us better understand what technology you have at home so we can best support you.

In addition, there are a number of free or low-cost resources, including free WiFi for New York City students, currently available from providers across the city. We are creating a consolidated list of resources on Hunter’s website, and we will continue to update it as we learn about more resources.  

Library and Learning Centers

At this time, floors 3, 6, and 7 of the Cooperman Library on the 68th Street Campus remain open on a limited basis. Students can access the space from 10:00am to 5:00pm, and desk staff will be available from 1:00 to 4:00pm for technology support.  Library staff across all our campuses are available remotely to support students and faculty; all you need are your NET ID and password, or your library barcode (found on the back of your OneCard ID) to access them. For more information, please see the remote access guide, access the guide to online resources, or contact a librarian through Ask-a-Librarian.   

In addition, the Learning Centers have transitioned to fully remote support and will continue to offer the same high levels of support and personalized attention.  Handouts, online tutorials, interactive exercises, virtual workshops, and supplemental instruction opportunities are available remotely.  The Dolciani Mathematics Learning Center, the Rockowitz Writing Center, and the Skirball Science Learning Center are able to provide you with tutoring online and by phone.
