Setup or reset your network password

Follow the steps below to activate your Network account for the first time OR reset a forgotten password. We also have an account orientation video available at this link. Your Network account username/password is the general sign-in for most campus systems including:

  • Bengal Success Portal
  • Blackboard
  • Buffalo State Mobile
  • Campus Network (Wired and Wireless)
  • Degree Works
  • Library (Online Databases / My Library)
  • My College Roomie
  • Scholarships Portal (CAPS)
Please Note If you know your Network password and just want to change it, you can do so by visiting the Change Password Utility. If you ever receive a message that your password has "expired," you can use this page to update it.
