New Students
Before coming to campus, there is a lot that you can do to prepare yourself. RMU Information Technology has you set with a list of activities to complete and setup to get you ahead of the game and ready for your first semester here.
Your Sentry Secured Services account is your online account that allows you to access RMU services, such as your grades and schedule. To activate your account, go to rmu.edu/activate. To sign in to an activated account, go to rmu.edu/myRMU.
At RMU we understand that we must be able to alert students instantaneously at critical times. RMU Alert is our emergency notification system that rapidly sends text, voice, and network broadcast messages in critical situations such as power outages, weather-related closings and delays, and campus security situations. Register today at rmu.edu/rmualert.
Resident students have access to Resnet, a division of RMU Information Technology that was created specifically for resident students. If you experience any technical issues on campus, contact the Resnet office at (412) 397-2299 or resnet@rmu.edu.
RMU Information Technology is also on Twitter! Follow us so that you can stay up-to-date with information coming directly from us on Twitter: @RMU_IT.
Want to get ahead of the game? Check out your classrooms online. Our RMU Classrooms site offers photos, information, and even 360-degree panoramas (in most buildings) of all classrooms on campus. Check them out today at rmu.edu/classrooms.
Your Google Account will have the same login credentials as your Sentry Secured Services account. By logging in to your Gmail account, you will have access to your @mail.rmu.edu email account. To access your email account, go to rmu.edu/gmail.
The RMU Help Desk is a free service to all students, faculty, and staff that allow them to receive technical support when needed. Be sure to add the Help Desk phone number (412-397-2211) to your contacts! They can also be reached at help@rmu.edu.
You're connected and so are we! Our RMU Information Technology Facebook page allows us to keep you up-to-date and informed with current and important information. Follow us on Facebook at facebook.com/RMUInformationTechnology.
RMU utilizes Google Apps for Education. This means that your RMU Account has access to Google services, such as Gmail, Google Drive, Google Plus, Google Hangouts, and more! Check out the products included in Google Apps for Education.
RMU offers printing on-campus through lab computers and through wireless printing. Learn more about printing and familiarize yourself with our print stations before trying it out. Access printing information at rmu.edu/printing.
