Faculty/Staff E-mail & Calendar
RIT provides an email address and account for all students, faculty, and staff. This email account is created when you receive an RIT Computer Account. Your RIT Computer Account has at least one email address associated with it. 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. You can also make your @rit.edu forward to a different e-mail system, if you choose.
All faculty and staff are automatically subscribed to RITmail, the RIT Communication Center. To customize your subscriptions, please visit https://ritmail.rit.edu.

Google Apps for Faculty & Staff
The Google Apps at RIT service is an opt-in service for your RIT Computer Account. Faculty/Staff can manage this at start.rit.edu.
By opting-in to Google Apps, you will have access to Google Docs and Google Drive. You also must agree to only use your Google account for RIT business purposes, follow RIT code of Conduct for Computer Use and RIT Network Acceptable Use Guidelines, and agree to the Google Apps for Schools Terms and Agreement.
The RIT Service Center provides knowledge articles with step by step instructions for the following FAQs related to email:
How do I set up Outlook on my computer?

Check your email by accessing Exchange Online by going to https://outlook.office365.com. Log in with your RIT Computer Account username and password to see your inbox, calendar, and have close to full functionality that you would see in Outlook.
