Student Email

All RCC students are assigned an email account. It is a Gmail account with a @roxbury.edu domain (instead of @gmail.com). Your RCC student email account is the only email the college will use to communicate important information.

It takes 24-48 hours to activate a new student email address.

If you have used RCC email before and changed your password, continue to use that one. Please call 617-427-0060 ext. 5555 or go to  https://fx.rcc.mass.edu/mypasswords to retrieve your email account information.
