How do I set up my student e-mail?

Your RioNET email is all set up and ready to go when you attend orientation or one week prior to the start of the first semester in which you are enrolled at Rio. You simply need to change the default password in order to gain access to your RioNET email.

At orientation the Campus Computing & Networking staff are available to assist all students in changing their default passwords, connecting to the campus WiFi, accessing RioNET email for the first time and adding the Exchange email account to your mobile device.

Otherwise, one week prior to the start of the semester the new students RioNET account is created. The New User Guide for Students has step-by-step instructions.
