We’re excited to kick off the new academic year with our week-long series of in-person and virtual activities. Welcome Week allows for new students to get informed, involved and connected to fellow students, faculty and staff.
Remotely access the software in computer labs and classrooms
Roosevelt students and faculty can access software on computers in both classrooms and open computer labs remotely.
Action Required: Changes to Password Reset Process
We are making some changes at the technology helpdesk, and the staff there will no longer be able to help you reset your NetID password. You will have to use the new, self-service password reset functionality to do this. For it to work, you are required to answer a few security questions and submit a cell phone number and/or an alternative email address to verify future password changes. Doing so now will help you reset your NetID password whenever you need and will be the only method to reset your NetID password in the future. You only need to do this once, so if you have already done so, you may disregard this message.
To enter your security information, please take the following steps:
- Go to login.roosevelt.edu and log in with your NetID and password
- Click the link that says “Hello, [your name]” and choose “My Account”
- “Select Account Recovery > Get Started” and enter the information requested.
If you have any questions about this, please open a help ticket.
Changes coming to Roosevelt WiFi: Friday, September 25
As part of our ongoing efforts to improve your data security, changes are coming to our WiFi networks. Beginning Friday, September 25, the “RUWIFI”network will no longer be available in academic spaces (floors 13 or below in the Wabash building, and anywhere in the Auditorium Building or at Schaumburg). The “ruwireless” network will take its place in those areas, and will be the only way to connect in the future. We encourage you to switch to using the “ruwireless” network now so that you do not experience any interruptions in your Wi-Fi service.
To connect to “ruwireless”, please take the following steps:
- Connect to the “ruwireless” wireless network.
- Open your web browser and go to http://wifi.roosevelt.edu which will take you to the enrollment portal.
- Follow the steps on the portal to enroll your device.
No action is required in the residential areas of the Wabash building or if you are not on campus. If you have any questions, please open a help ticket.
RMUI Website & Email Address Updates
On Monday, August 31, the Robert Morris University Illinois website officially retired. The robertmorris.edu website is now a static web page displaying important information pertaining to the institution’s closure and integration with RU, along with helpful links about transcript requests, student billing, employment verification, tax information, and more.
It is strongly recommended that all robertmorris.edu emails forward to your roosevelt.edu address (see instructions). Roosevelt email addresses should be used for all University and academic communications moving forward. All RMUI email addresses and Google Drive will be disabled Wednesday, September 30.
