If you’ve been feeling some confusion and frustration lately with the various login IDs and passwords you have to remember to function at Hunter, you’re not alone. We’ve been told that the clutch of logins and passwords will soon be whittled down, but in the meantime as Hunter makes the transition to the new student email system and CUNYfirst, things will be a little more complicated. Hopefully this post will help clarify the situation for you.
First of all, you are going to have to learn four (4) distinct login IDs and passwords at the moment in order to access all the things you need. They are:
1. CUNYfirst username/password – used to access everything in CUNYfirst. This will also be used for your @myhunter email.
2. MyHunter email address/password – use your CUNYfirst username followed by @myhunter.cuny.edu and your CUNYfirst password to access your email
3. CUNY Portal ID/password – used for CUNY-wide services like Blackboard, DIG, and CUNY eMall
4. Hunter NetID/password – used for logging into Hunter-specific resources like Library Databases and OneCard.
Got it? Me either. But the links above will take you to the pages with the relevant information about each account. Of course, we at the Libraries think you should remember your Net ID and password above all since you can use it to access all of our online resources. Except for your CUNY+ library account. For that, you’ll need to know your barcode….
