For Staff/Faculty

Your RRU computer account is created after acceptance of an offer of employment and as requested by your CAMP supervisor.  The account information is emailed to your supervisor and will be provided to you on your first day of employment. 

  • Your computer account is your responsibility so don't give your passphrase to anyone!
  • Create a passphrase that is memorable to you but not too easy for someone else to figure out.
  • It is recommended that you use strong passphrases and you will be required to change it every 120 days.

 

Tip:

See 'passphrase Requirements' and 'Creating Strong Passphrases' for tips on how to create passphrases even your mother won't guess.

How to Change Your passphrase:
