About NetID

Basic information about NetIDs

What does my NetID do for me?

The Rice NetID is a unique login credential for each Rice student, faculty, or staff member. Your NetID is established within 24 hours of your undergraduate student status (early May after all deposits are received), your graduate student acceptance, or your acceptance of employment. These actions all change your status in the Rice database, which triggers the creation of your NetID. In turn, your NetID creation activates your Rice email account and your personal storage account at Rice. Your NetID is used to access on multiple Rice University systems as well as log in to campus computers.
