We are thrilled that you will be joining our community! You are about to embark on an incredible journey. Now that you’re enrolled, let this page serve as your guide to finding helpful information to make your path to becoming a Rider Bronc as smooth as possible.
Let's Get Started
The myRider portal is a personalized hub that allows Rider students quick access to available campus web services and resources. To access myRider, visit myRider.rider.edu, click Claim Your RIDER KEY and enter the information requested.
In order to claim your account, you will need to enter your Bronc ID, last name, and date of birth. You will then be prompted to set up your password and security questions.
*Find your Bronc ID on your Be-A-Bronc applicant dashboard.
To access your Rider email account, go to gmail.rider.edu.
Enter your Username and Password. Your Username is the same as the one you use to access your myRider portal, followed by @rider.edu, so it is entered as [email protected].
Your password has been set as a default, using your 9-digit Bronc ID and the month and day of your birthday. (Your Bronc ID can be found at the bottom of your acceptance letter.) EX: If your Bronc ID number is 000000001 and your birthday is May 1, your default password is 0000000010501.
Once you gain access, be sure to start checking your Rider email frequently! All future communications from Rider will be sent to your student email account.
*Enrolled transfer students will gain access once deposited and first-year students at the end of May.
