Parking in Manhattan is a joke. Unless you have hundreds of dollars to shell out every few weeks to park your car in a garage or plan to dash out of class every half-hour to escape the meter maid giving you a ticket, it's best to leave your car at home and use the MTA public transportation like everybody else. Most students at Hunter don't drive to school, and if they do, they park in Queens or Harlem and then take the 6 or F train a few stops to Hunter.
There is a garage opposite of Hunter, and there are a lot of meters around campus, but since the College is located in the middle of the Upper East Side, these accommodations are both expensive and time-consuming. Hunter does not have any special arrangements with any garages, so students who choose to bring cars to school have to navigate through these problems themselves.
