Setting up your RHSmith email account

Your Smith email address is the communication channel used by the Business School to send you important information. It's your responsibility to check your Smith email account for any messages that you may have been sent by Faculty or School administrators. 

Attached at the bottom of this page are orientation documents for students as well as staff/faculty in PDF format with clickable linksAlternatively for online versions, click here for the student orientation document or here for the staff/faculty document.

You can use this checklist below to make sure you can access your Smith email account. 

Incoming faculty and staff get their accounts created after Payroll has submitted the required information to the Office of Smith IT. Note that the email account provided to staff and faculty is intended for work related activities and recommend that you do not use it for personal activities and communications. The Office of Smith IT will contact your supervisor to let them know when your new account is ready. If you're a new hire and you don't have an account yet, please contact Payroll via or in person in Suite 3570 at Van Munching Hall. 

MBA/MS and PhD Students get their Smoogle account created automatically.
