Buff Portal - Accessibility

Last Updated: 09/09/2020

What is Accessibility?

‘Accessible’ means a person with a disability is afforded the opportunity to acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services as a person without a disability in an equally effective and equally inclusive manner, with substantially equivalent ease of use.

Service Overview

Buff Portal is CU’s new online portal for students that replaced the student tab in MyCUInfo on December 30, 2019. Buff Portal was developed by the Unified Student Experience (USE) project, a campus-wide project that is working to unify the online and in-person CU Boulder student experience. Its goal is to transform today’s fragmented digital and physical student support landscape by creating a seamless experience for students.
