Access to Technology Services and EasyPass
EasyPass allows students to access technology services available to the Rider community, including:
Your EasyPass username is your Rider e-mail address without the “@rider.edu.” New students will use their Bronc ID number plus the four-digit MMDD of their date of birth as their default password. For example, if the Bronc ID is 001234567 and the date of birth is September 1, 1975, the default password will be 0012345670901.
All Rider students are assigned a Rider email address that must be used for all Rider official email correspondence. Your e-mail User Name is your full Rider email account name (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org). For more information about email, visit the technology site.
New address or phone number
Students are able to update their address through MyRider, or by completing the appropriate form available from your advisor.
New Student Reception
Approximately one week before the start of fall and spring semesters, you will receive an invitation to Rider University’s new graduate student reception. At this reception, you will be able to obtain your student ID and parking decal and purchase books for your classes. If you would like to complete these tasks prior to the reception, please follow the steps below.
Vehicle Registration & Parking
All vehicles must be registered with the Public Safety Office located in West House, near the south entrance of campus. If you registered your vehicle during an earlier registration period, the decals that you received are still valid and will remain so for your entire academic program unless you have changed vehicles since your last registration or have a new license plate. If your vehicle registration information has changed or if you are attending Rider’s Department of Graduate Business for the first time, you may secure new Rider decals by going to the Public Safety office (West House). The office is open seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day. Be prepared to show your state vehicle registration form, your driver’s license, insurance card, and Bronc ID. Parking for students is permitted in the lot in front of the Bart Luedeke Center (Student Center).
Students who need to obtain a new or replacement ID card should go to Public Safety Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. New student ID photos will also be taken in the Bart Luedeke Center, Room137, during the fall and spring semester’s one-stop enrollment clearance periods. Students who lose their ID card after hours can obtain a temporary card at Public Safety. If you lose your ID, please note that there is a $30 replacement fee charged to have a new photo taken for a replacement card.
University Store Hours
Books for your courses can be purchased from the University store located on the bottom floor of the Bart Luedeke Center. Normal hours during the semester are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday; Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For additional information call (609) 896-5121.
