Faculty and Staff
As of January 6, 2015, all faculty and staff have an official URI email address on Google Apps for Education with unlimited storage. The account is in the format: firstname.lastname@example.org. The pre-set password for your email account is your birth date in the form mmddyyyy; it is NOT your e-Campus password. Change your password immediately for security reasons!
Keep in mind…
We cannot activate your account until we receive your information from the Office of Human Resources Administration. Please contact the Help Desk at 874-HELP if you are experiencing an undue delay in getting on-line.
