The 50 Ugliest College Campuses

39. CUNY Hunter

Location: New York
Year Built: Many were built in the 1980s (Founded: 1870)
Key Architects: Various, including: C.B.J. Snyder

Like many colleges of the time, CUNY Hunter was designed in the Modern Brutalist style. The buildings are cold and uninviting, and many of them lack adequate windows. Most of them look old and run down, and the location within New York City doesn't add to the campus' already decentralized environment. Ironically, iconic architectural critic, Ada Louise Huxtable, is a notable alumna.
