  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.25 Average Rating
Hunter is cultural, dynamic, liberal, and brilliant. Open-minded professors and students alike make for an innovative learning environment. I have learned more than what I hoped to learn.
Tracy from LAKE WORTH, FL
Not only is Hunter a place where inspiration can become one at any moment, it is a place that provides the tools needed to identify inspiration. With inspiration, Hunter gives an avenue for thought and inquiry through experience, such as through their study abroad opportunities that are not limited to Hunter, but to the entire CUNY and SUNY communities. And lastly, but most importantly, the education here is to be recognized as one of the best schools the world can offer, with professors who are regularly published in the New York Times and other journals that rank in the highest education degree for their fields and among other universities.
