Email Services

Rutgers Connect

The centralized university-wide email and calendar service, based on Microsoft Office 365, is called Rutgers Connect.  This cloud service includes email, calendaring, and many other services including 50 GB of mail storage and 1 TB of personal file storage (OneDrive) per person.

For more details on this service, please see:



Rutgers student email is called ScarletMail (GoogleApps for Education).  ScarletMail accounts are available for faculty and staff.  It is suggested that faculty and staff use Rutgers Connect for official University business, but ScarletMail can be used to collaborate with students in a classroom environment.

The service can be activated at by clicking on “Service Activation.”  ScarletMail can be accessed at or via the myRutgers portal.  Reading ScarletMail through any other mail program, such as on a phone, requires a separate ScarletApps Mobile/IMAP password. To setup a Mobile password, go to and click on “Manage Your ScarletApps Mobile/IMAP/POP Password”.

The ScarletApps suite provides additional enhanced communication and collaboration tools, such as Drive, Google+, Calendar, and more.  Alumni and retirees can continue to use ScarletApps services forever, providing a lifelong link to the many resources available to the Rutgers community.

RBHS faculty, staff, and students are required to use the email address assigned by their department/unit/school as their Official Rutgers Email Address.  ScarletMail is available for personal use.
