Email General Information


RIT provides an e-mail address and account for all students, faculty, and staff. This e-mail account is created when you receive an RIT computer account.


E-mail addresses at RIT


Your RIT computer account has at least one e-mail address associated with it. Depending on the options you have set up at, you may have more e-mail addresses. If you set up personalized (students/faculty/staff) and/or named-based addresses (faculty/staff only), these additional addresses merely point to your RIT Computer Account.


Note: Personalized and name-based e-mail addresses do not provide you with additional accounts, login usernames, or e-mail storage.
