Guest NetIDs and Accounts

Guest accounts are intended to support the activities of Rutgers University. Guests are expected to use their Rutgers accounts only in support of their work with Rutgers, as described in their guest account application. More detailed policies are contained in the Guest Account Policies section of the Computing Policies page. All guests and their sponsors are responsible for abiding by policies described on that page, including specifically the Acceptable Use Policy and Guest Policy.

How to request this service: 

Guest Accounts For Faculty and Staff

A guest account can be requested by a full-time Rutgers faculty or staff member. This individual will be considered the University sponsor and will be expected to maintain contact with the guest.

Annual renewal notifications will be addressed to the sponsor as well as the guest.

To request a guest account on the New Brunswick faculty/staff system (rci.rutgers.edu), the sponsoring department should complete the online form located at: https://requests.rutgers.edu/

Guest Accounts for Faculty/Staff Retirement

Retired Rutgers employees who have served the university for a minimum of 10 years can apply for retention of their Scarletmail accounts following retirement.

To do so, they must contact the Rutgers Retired Faculty and Staff Center, University Human Resources, ASB II, 57 US Highway 1, New Brunswick, NJ 08901-8554 ((848) 932-3580) or email that office using the form at http://retirement.rutgers.edu/contact-the-rfsa .

The retiree will be directed to https://requests.rutgers.edu/retirees.htm to submit a guest request. Once the request has been approved, the retiree's Scarletmail account will be subject to all guest account regulations.

There will be an audit of Scarletmail accounts conducted annually. The retiree should reply to the audit email message sent out to maintain his/her Scarletmail account. If no reply is received by the due date, the account will be closed during the next regularly scheduled account closing time.
