Activate your CityMail, CUNY Portal and WebCheckout

Activating Your CityMail

Activating your CityMail account is an important step in your transition to becoming a full member of the City College Community.  All matters related to your admission and enrollment at the College will be sent through your CityMail e-mail account, as well many important alerts and official announcements. 

Your e-mail username also allows you to access the CCNY Wi-Fi, to log in to computers in the Tech Center and to reserve study rooms via WebCheckout.

Your CityMail account is automatically generated 72 hours after you register for classes. Activate your account here.

Instructions on how to activate your account can be found here.

Activating Your Citizen CUNY Portal Account

This is your private and secure one-stop access point to CUNY on-line services such as Blackboard, eMall and eSIMS (Electronic Student Information Management System) CUNY records. This is also where you can obtain your financial aid information, register for courses and learn about services and benefits offered through CUNY.

For basic information on accessing your CUNY Portal account and eSIMS go here.
