Information for Warner Students
Email Accounts and Accessing Information Technology


Email Accounts - Matriculated students
  • Step#1 (Request your URGmail mailbox)  - All matriculated Warner School students are encouraged to sign up for a URGmail hosted mailbox.
    • Please use the request URGmail form to request your UR student maibox. After your new mailbox is setup (serveral day process), all university email will be sent to this new address.
    • The new unlimited URgmail mailbox includes access to google aps and google drive for storing documents. Under our current agreement with Google you can use the mailbox indefinently as long as you graduate and continue to use it.
    • Once you receive a reply that your mailbox is setup, please visit the URGmail support page to login and learn how to use your new mailbox.
  • Step#2 (Set up your @rochester.edu email alias) - As a matriculated student, you are eligible for a University of Rochester email alias with the format first.last@rochester.edu. A few days after you register for the first time, you can visit the @rochester.edu website to setup your alias.
    • This email alias will automatically forward to your URGmail hosted mailbox (requested in step #1) or the original email address you provided when you applied to the Warner School.
    • Should you wish to change the e-mail address you originally provided when you applied, please use the change email address form at the bottom of this page to notify us about the change.
    • Blackboard and online registration each have separate email directories that also needs to be updated.  Changing your e-mail or contact information through Blackboard or online registration will not update your Warner School record and could result in you missing important news from the Registrar or Student Service Offices.
Email Accounts - Non-Matriculated Students
  • As a non-matriculated student, you are not eligible for a URGmail hosted mailbox. Email communications will come to you through the e-mail you provided the Warner Registrar when you completed your non-matriculated student registration form.
    • Should you wish to change your e-mail address, use the change email address form  to notify us about the change.
    • Blackboard has a separate email directory that needs to be updated independently of all other campus systems.
