All Hunter faculty, staff and students receive an email account automatically. Email is provided by different services and platforms depending on user category.
On This Page:
Thank you for your patience regarding Hunter College’s recent network issues. Most services and systems have been restored. The remaining services and systems will be restored in the coming days. Read more.
Every Hunter student has an email address that follows this formula: CUNYfirst username followed by @myhunter.cuny.edu, e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org. (Note: Student email addresses no longer end in @hunter.cuny.edu.)
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, off-campus access to library resources, computer labs, etc.
