Finding Your Way

The Hunter College Libraries are actually four distinct libraries with different collections, personnel and locations.

Hunter and CUNY

Hunter College is home to four libraries, each with a distinct collection. As if that wasn't enough, Hunter also belongs to the City University (CUNY) system which provides all CUNY students with access to over 20 libraries in all five boroughs. So no matter where you live, chances are you have a CUNY close by. There will be more detail about each of the Hunter Libraries in this guide, but here is a map of all the CUNY libraries. The map includes location information, subway directions, and links to websites for each institution. Click on the link below the map to view it in a larger size.
