East Building Closure Update for Thursday, Dec. 7. All classes taking place in the East Building of the Main Campus have resumed. The Library is open. Offices on floors 13 through 17 will remain CLOSED to staff. Those stationed on these floors should work remotely. Offices on floors 3 through 12 will be OPEN. Those stationed on these floors can return to the office.
Every Hunter student has an email address that follows this formula: CUNYfirst username followed by @myhunter.cuny.edu, e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your email password is your CUNYfirst password. Whenever you change your CUNYfirst password, your email password will change automatically. (Depending on the traffic volume on the CUNYfirst website, you may need to wait briefly for your password to synchronize up with your CUNYfirst and email account.)
CUNY security policy does not allow for the automatic email forwarding to another account. As an alternative, you can easily synchronize your new email on your smart phone or tablet. Documentation is available on how to do so as well as other alternatives.
You will continue to use your NetID for Hunter services such as wireless access, registering for campus events, off-campus access to library resources, computer labs, etc.
