Hunter Hall was designed to offer its residents more than just a place to live. There are many benefits to living on campus that can enhance your overall college experience, from convenience to safety to learning opportunities.
There is no need to worry about replacing a light bulb, setting up utilities, or bothering with monthly bills. When you live in the Residence Hall, your semester payment through student accounts 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.
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 Life Coordinator (RLC). The RLC 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 Residence Hall and another 250 just across campus in University Forest Apartments, 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 regularly scheduled programs that spread learning beyond the classroom and into their home away from home. Studies have shown that residents living on campus have increased personal growth and development and are better at adapting to their environment, leading to greater empathy and ability to relate to others.
