UBIT Account

All students, faculty and staff at the University at Buffalo are given a unique UBITName and password that will allow you to access campus resources.

Your UBITName and password will be used to log-in to public computers on campus, MyUB, HUB Student Center, PC Stations, UBmail and UB Learns.

Activate Your UBITName

Activating your UBITName is a simple process that requires just a few steps:

  • As instructed in your admission letter from the UB School of Social Work, you will first log-in to your GrAdmit application to confirm your acceptance.
  • Second, you will access your UBITName and person number on your GrAdmit application. You will find these listed under the Status tab in your GrAdmit application.
  • Third, The Graduate School will email you a one-time use password to the email address you used on your GrAdmit application. Look for an email with the subject line: Your Access to UB. Once you’ve gathered your UBITName and Person Number, you are ready to activate your UBITName. 
  • Finally, on the Activate Your UBITName website, select your group from the list provided and click on the hyperlink. Next, go to the UBITName Manager and follow the instructions on the screen to activate your UBITName. Once you’ve activated your UBITName, you will be prompted to change your password.

You can also find your UBITName online. On this page enter your first and last name, and hit enter. Your UBITName will display on the screen.
