Why Live in Hunter Hall?

Live Conveniently

While living on campus, you're a short walk away from your classes, on-campus dining, the Recreation and Wellness Center, the Neumann Library, and other convenient places to study.

Live All-Inclusively

There is no need to worry about replacing a light bulb, setting up utilities, or bothering with monthly bills. When you live in the Hunter Hall, your semester payment through your student account covers electricity, water, sewer and garbage, cable TV in the lounges, laundry, and high speed internet (wireless and wired). In addition, living on campus means that you have a maintenance staff on-site to keep things running at optimal levels.

Live Safely

Each main entrance to Hunter Hall has an electronic lock to ensure that those entering are residents of the building. Our UHCL Police Department is available 24/7, and live-in staff members are available seven days a week. 

Resident Advisors, who are peer leaders, live on each floor and are supervised by a Residential Hall Director (RHD). The RHD is a full-time staff member who also lives in the building to offer support and is trained to handle issues that may arise while living on campus.

Live in a Community

With almost 300 people living in the Hunter Hall, making connections with others is as easy as opening your door.  There will be regularly planned activities to build community and help residents connect with those who have similar interests. Students who live on campus gain a sense of school pride and report greater satisfaction with their college experience.

Live and Learn

Students living on campus have the opportunity to attend high-impact Live. Learn. Engage. programs that spread learning beyond the classroom and into their home away from home. Research has shown that students who live on campus have higher GPAs, increased personal growth and development and are better at adapting to their environment than commuter students, all of which leads to better grades, greater empathy and ability to relate to others.
