What It Is
Buff Portal, CU Boulder's mobile-friendly online student portal, is available to all CU Boulder students and most alumni.
Designed and developed in close partnership with students and campus offices, Buff Portal officially launched on Dec. 30, 2019, and continues to improve and grow in response to students' wants and needs.

How to Access It
If you've already activated your IdentiKey credentials, log in using your IdentiKey username and password.
When you log in for the first time, you'll be asked to consent to conduct business electronically at CU. If you don't consent, you'll lose access to the portal and will instead receive information about how to conduct official university business offline.
