Engage with Others in the Rutgers Tech Communities

Need technical help when there’s no one else around. The university’s technical user communities are always here for you and well networked. You’re never alone … at least not technically. Join the ru_it@email.rutgers.edu mailing list by visiting http://ucstoolkit.rutgers.edu/general/emaillists.html and following the instructions. We’re happy to provide assistance, advice, experience, sharing and just keeping in touch. Monthly OIT Tech meetings with agenda and highlights are posted to ru_it.

OIT Tech meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month during the fall and spring semesters in Davidson Hall, room 101 at 1:30pm. The meetings are usually available via video conference, live stream (viewers can chat questions to the meeting), or recording.

New Guest NetID Request Web Form

To improve the accuracy and efficiency of the Guest NetID process, the Office of Information Technology is introducing a new web form to replace paper forms for requesting Guest NetID and Accounts for legacy Rutgers users!

As a sponsor, you can log in to the web form with your NetID and password and submit requests electronically. For your convenience, this web form allows you to track the progress of your new request and make changes to requests that need additional information or clarification.

Please find the new form at: https://guest-netid.rutgers.edu

Once logged in, click the “Request a New Guest NetID” button. You will be asked to verify your information before entering the information for your guest. On the homepage, you will be able to view the status of your request.

Please discard any blank paper forms in your possession, as they will no longer be accepted.

Please contact the NBCS Help Desk at the number below, or email us at accounts@oit.rutgers.edu, if you have questions or concerns.

Please note: There will be an enterprise wide guest solution (including RBHS) implemented later this year which will have a self-service approach, and include workflows and attestation. It will be fully integrated with the University?s Person Registry, enabling improved onboarding of guests and security compliance. This enterprise solution will replace both legacy Rutgers? interim online guest form and RBHS guest provisioning process. For any questions regarding the enterprise wide solution, please contact idm_tech@email.rutgers.edu.
