What is MyRole?

MyRole designates who you are at UB. If you are registered at UB for classes, you are a student. If you teach at UB, you are a faculty. If you are an employee at UB, you are a staff. If you graduated from UB with a degree, you are Alumni. You can have multiple roles depending on your current status.

Default Constituency with multiple roles

If you have multiple roles, your default login constituency is determined by ranking. The order of ranking is as follows Faculty, Staff, Students and Alumni. For example if you are both faculty and staff, your default login will be faculty. But you can always switch to staff, by hovering your mouse over MyRole and clicking on Staff.

My Email Setup

If you logged in to the portal for the first time, you have to “Enter your Credentials” in the email webpart. This is a onetime setup, so you can have Single Sign On access to Email and Eureka.

What are Account Notifications?

If there are any holds or messages that the University offices wants to communicate with you they will appear here. These messages display further information, on what the hold is and how you can resolve them.

What are Team Sites?

Team sites are a collaborative workspace to which you get access by membership. Team Sites, can be students clubs, Student organizations, residential hall sites, committee sites, athletic team sites, department sites, alumni sites. A team site has an owner, and members. To request a team site please contact for further instructions.

When I try to login to the portal, it keeps asking for my username and password again?
Please note that you have to change your password before you attempt to login to the portal for the first time. Once you have changed your password, please wait 5 minutes before you try to login to the portal with your new password. If you still have problem contact help.

When I try to login to the portal I get a message that says ““Constituency not assigned” or “Primary Constituency has not been assigned”

So can I access the library, email, webadvisor, from individual quick links on the website still?
Yes, but please be advised that these individual links for the services will be removed eventually, and the only way you can access all these resources will be through the portal.
