Hunter College residents have the unique opportunity to enrich their learning experiences beyond the classroom by becoming involved in the Residence Life community. Residents can participate in a number of social, educational, and cultural programs designed to enhance their education and to promote positive relationships within the residences and the community at large.
Only a limited number of Hunter’s 23,000 plus students have the opportunity to live in our residences. Scholar groups are given priority access, and are assigned to a specific residence to better build community among them.
