Hunter Students Create a Room of Their Own

Hunter students sit anywhere they can find a seat: on the floor, next to waste bins, on the stairs and on window sills. They gather between library stacks in their spare time. 

When the cafeteria seats are taken and the library is full, students must carve out their own space to study, eat, and do their daily tasks. With university enrollment at an all-time high, that search is getting harder.

First-year student enrollment at The City University of New York increased by four percent. About 17,212 undergraduate students have been enrolled at Hunter College in 2018, according to Hunter’s office of institutional research. 

The photo essay below shows how creative Hunter students can it comes to carving out some personal space on campus.
