The CUNY Portal ID is a username and password combination that lets you access services hosted centrally at CUNY (as opposed to services hosted locally at Hunter, such as your email). The CUNY services include:
You cannot use your Hunter NetID to access these services; you must create a CUNY Portal ID to use them. You will pick your username and password, but Hunter strongly recommends that you use your Hunter NetID for your Portal ID username, if it is not already in use by another member of the CUNY community. For example, if your Hunter NetID is "jsmith" (and therefore your Hunter email address is "email@example.com"), we advise you to choose "jsmith" as your CUNY Portal ID username as well. But, whatever you choose, you should remember it--you'll use it extensively throughout your time at CUNY!
Please note: If you are transferring from another CUNY college, it is very likely that you already have a Portal ID. If you already created your CUNY Portal ID but don't remember your username, click here for instructions on how to look up this information.
To activate your CUNY Portal ID, if you are new to the CUNY system, follow the instructions here.
