New to Hunter? Confused by all the terms? This page will help.

CUNY Portal

This gateway, which you use your CUNY Portal ID (and password) to enter, gives you access to any services hosted centrally to be used by all of CUNY's colleges.  These services include eSIMS, Blackboard, DegreeAudit/DIG, and the eMall. More information is also available here.

Hunter NetID

This username (and its password) are what you use to access services hosted specifically at Hunter, for the Hunter community only.  These services include e-mail, the wireless network, PAC terminals, and OneCard. More information is also available here.

Blackboard (or Bb)

A course management system heavily used within CUNY.  It permits the instructor to post assignments & quizzes, hold discussions on internal forums, upload files, and more.  (Not all instructors use all features.)


"Public Access Computers" are terminals around the Hunter campuses that students can use for basic web browsing (including checking e-mail). 


Your Hunter student ID card has accounts encoded on it that let you use it to pay for printing, copying, cafeteria food, and dorm laundry at Brookdale.  These account services are known collectively as "OneCard." More information is also available here.


Also called DIG (Degree Information for Graduation), this is a CUNY-hosted tool that lets you check what courses you still need in order to obtain your degree.

CUNY eMall

A web-store available through the CUNY portal that allows members of the CUNY community to purchase software and hardware at significant discounts.  (This is also where you can download free anti-virus software.)
