Email & Calendaring

Every employee and student at Rice is automatically given a Rice.edu email account and a personal storage account.  In addition students and employees also receive access to Google Calendar and several other core Google Apps for Education.  Undergraduate students can manage their rice.edu messages through Gmail. Faculty, staff, and graduate students will continue to manage their rice.edu email with services such as Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail or webmail.rice.edu.

Other University Calendars

Rice Events Calendar

The university events calendar displays a wide variety of campus events and includes features such as customizable RSS feeds. Everyone can view the calendar, but only department representatives can edit events for their group.  If your department is not yet submitting events to the university calendar, contact Web Sevices to request an account.

Student Events Calendars

Both the graduate student and undergraduate student associations feature student events calendars on their web sites.  Clubs and organizations should contact the respective associations to submit events to these calendars. Individual residential colleges also manage their own private calendars.
