Residence Halls

As a student of Hunter College, you have the opportunity to live in one of our residence halls, where you’ll connect with your fellow residents through social, educational, and cultural events. Apply for on-campus housing to immerse yourself in the Hunter community!

  • Applying to live in a residence hall begins on February 2 and ends on May 31.
  • All applications submitted after May 31 will be waitlisted.

Our four residence halls are listed below. Information for all halls can be found at Living@Hunter.

Become a Resident Assistant

Are you interested in fostering connections with others as you live in one of our residence halls? Becoming a Resident Assistant (RA) or Community Assistant allows ample opportunity to create a positive community where you live. As an RA, you’ll help support your peers while upholding the policies of the Office of Residence Life and Hunter College.

Apply to become an RA/CA
Once you’ve applied to become an RA/CA, you’ll want to send the Residence Life form to two people who will provide references for you.

Provide a reference for someone else
If the RA/CA applicant has asked you to serve as a reference, please fill out this Residence Life form.

After you apply
Once you have been chosen as a Resident Assistant, Hunter will place you in one of our three dorms around campus. If you would like to continue in your RA role the following year, you must reapply for housing.

Help for Housing Costs

Richter Award Fund

This award is given in the amount of $1,000 and applied to your account to reduce your outstanding balance for the academic year. Recipients of the Richter Award Fund will be responsible for on-time payments of their housing bill, minus the $1,000 reward.

Financial assistance is available if you are eligible.

Alternative Housing Options

We understand that on-campus housing is not for everyone. If you are a student looking for off-campus housing, alternative housing is available, from long-term apartment rentals to limited-stay hostels. Please remember that these locations are not associated with Hunter College; you will have to contact them directly for information. We highly recommend that you visit these locations in person before signing a contract.

Finding Roommates

As a new student, you can use the Roommate Finder in the Admissions School app to connect with fellow Hunter students. Get to know your peers before the school year starts, and you may just find your roommate, as well!
