  • Blackboard CUNY Wide Log-In Issue

    PLEASE BE AWARE: Some students and Faculty may not be able to log into Blackboard.  This is currently a CUNY-Wide issue with some students and faculty not being able to access Blackboard across all CUNY institutions.  CUNY Central is aware of the issue, and is rapidly working on a resolution. If you are experiencing this issue, please contact the Helpdesk at 646-312-1010 so that a service ticket may be opened with CUNY Central. 

  • Change to Blackboard Login Method

    Students, Faculty, and Staff will log in to Blackboard using their CUNYfirst username (followed by @login.cuny.edu) and CUNYfirst password instead of your regular Blackboard credentials.  The process of accessing Blackboard will otherwise be the same.

    EXAMPLE: If your CUNYfirst Username is George.Washington76, you would add @login.cuny.edu to the end of the username so it looks like: George.Washington76@login.cuny.edu.  After that, enter in your CUNYfirst password as you normally would to complete the login process to Blackboard
