Rutgers Connect Official Communications
The following is an archive of all official communications that were sent from OIT or SAS IT about Rutgers Connect:
Initial e-mail from SAS IT....
You should have received an e-mail from OIT yesterday (Tuesday 2/8) asking you to visit http://rumigrated.rutgers.edu.
This web page was developed to help gather information for the upcoming migration to Rutgers Connect, which is the name for the new Office 365 based e-mail and calendaring system. It is important that everyone visit this page and provide the requested information.Â This page will remain up throughout the process and you'll be able to return to it later to provide updated information if necessary. For now, it is important that you get your information in as soon as possible as it will help us with the planning process.
Rutgers has engaged the services of a vendor to assist us with the migration of approximately 30,000 e-mail accounts. That vendor will only be moving one mailbox per user so, if you have more than one account, other migrations will be handled by your local IT staff.Â The RUMigrated web page allows you to verify the information we have about your e-mail, specify which account is primary and provide us with any corrections or other information that you want us to know.
Please keep in mind that President has stated that all Rutgers faculty and staff business must be conducted through a single email system and that system is Rutgers Connect. If you are using non-Rutgers accounts (e.g. Gmail, Yahoo, etc) for Rutgers business, you should provide that information as well and we'll help you move those messages.
We have created a new page on the SAS IT site where we will post updated, SAS specific, information about this process.Â You can access this page using the following link:

Initial e-mail requesting that users visit the RUMigrated tool....
Rutgers Faculty and Staff,
Per an announcement made in October, and as noted in the President’s University Strategic Plan, Rutgers is transitioning to a new official centralized university-wide email and calendar service for faculty and staff. This new service will be called Rutgers Connect. The Rutgers Connect service, running on Microsoft’s Office 365 system, will effectively facilitate improved communications, collaboration and scheduling across the community.
As an initial step in the migration process, all faculty and staff will need to select one primary email account to be migrated to the Rutgers Connect system. The University’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) will use the information it collects about your primary account to coordinate your email and calendar data migration with your departmental IT support staff prior to your date of transition. Please use the web-based tool below to submit your current email account information. Note that this tool also collects information about additional email accounts you may have or use, for review by your departmental IT support staff.
Please log into the website below to select an account no later than March 1, 2016:
In an effort to help your email and calendar data migration to proceed efficiently, we encourage you to submit your current email account information as soon as possible. You may continue to modify your information after submission any time before March 1.
For details about the Rutgers Connect service, please see: https://oit.rutgers.edu/connect. Your departmental IT support staff will be actively participating in this migration process and will also be able to provide additional information and assistance. If you have questions about the Rutgers Connect initiative, please contact your local IT support staff.
If you have any additional questions, please contact the Rutgers OIT Help Desk at:
