About Blackboard

Blackboard is a Web-based course management program that enables students and faculty to participate in online classes and/or utilize online course materials to compliment face-to-face learning.

How do I access Blackboard?

Go to https://bbhosted.cuny.edu/ and sign in using your CUNY Login credentials. Your CUNY Login is typically in the form of firstname.lastname##@login.cuny.edu (the numbers are the last two digits of you CUNY EMPLID).

My class is not listed in Blackboard. What should I do?

Please contact your professor, as it is possible that they need to activate the class. If the class is active, please submit a Blackboard support request and we will resolve the issue as soon as possible.

I do not have a CUNYfirst EMPLID or I cannot login to Blackboard?

Activate your CUNYfirst account. If you are unable to activate your account, please contact the Brooklyn College Network Support Group at 718.677.6180 (M-F, 9-5) for assistance.

I forgot my CUNYfirst password.

Complete the CUNYfirst password reset form.

Where do I go for help?

Visit the CUNY help page or the student user guide.
If you are still unable to log in to Blackboard, contact the Help Desk at 718.951.4357 or via e-mail.
