Obtaining an Account

New students are given a UCR Net ID with their acceptance letter, and an email account after accepting their offer of admission.

Your email account comes with three email addresses, also known as aliases. Email sent to any of these three addresses will go to the same R'Mail account and can be accessed by the same login. This allows you to choose the format that best meets your needs:

  • UCRNetID@ucr.edu
  • UCRNetID@student.ucr.edu
  • firstname.lastname@email.ucr.edu (Address may include a three digit number if multiple people have the same name.)

You can look up your UCR Net ID by visiting http://passwordreset.ucr.edu.  To verify your firstname.lastname@email.ucr.edu address log in to R'Web and select the Student Profile app within Authorized Applications.

Your default password is your Permanent PIN, but we recommend that you set a secure password as soon as possible. A secure password is required in order to log in to the campus computer labs.  If you forget your Permanent PIN you can bring your student ID card to the Registrar's Office to retrieve it.

Logging into R'Mail

There are multiple ways to log in to your R'Mail account:

  • Go to the R'Web student portal and click on R'Mail. This will provide you with single sign-on access through CAS to R'Mail and Google Apps, as well as other UCR services including iLearn and Growl.
  • Go to R'Mail directly at http://rmail.ucr.edu.
  • Go to the Gmail website. You cannot login directly through the Google Gmail website. However, if you enter your UCRNetID@ucr.edu address as the username, and leave the password field blank, on the Google login page you will be redirected to the R'Mail CAS login page.

The first time that you login to R'Mail you will be taken to the R'Mail setup page.  The setup page will display your email address, require you to enter the CAPTCHA challenge, and require you to agree to the Google Terms of Service.

If you have a non-UCR Google account you can use Google's Multiple Sign-In feature to access both accounts in the same web browser at the same time.

R'Mail uses the CAS single sign-on for authentication. In order to completely log out of R'Mail and other UCR services, you should close all open browser windows and quit your web browser.

Your R'Mail Password

Your R'Mail account has two passwords, your UCR NetID Password which is used to access R'Mail through the web, and your R'Mail (Google) Password which is used to access R'Mail with a POP/IMAP email program.  Options for setting your UCR NetID Password for the first time, changing your passwords, or resetting your passwords are available at http://studentusername.ucr.edu.

Account Quota

All UCR students receive unlimited storage shared between their R'Mail and Google Drive.

Account Expiration

Your email account is active so long as you are currently enrolled or are an alumnus. If your enrollment lapses and you haven't graduated yet, your account will be deactivated one year from the time of lapse.
