Student working on computer

After you’re admitted to Northwestern, you also are given a Northwestern email address. Your email address will be: your username for theROCK

For most of you, that will be your first and middle initials and your last name. But if there are already other students here with that combo, you might have a number at the end as well.

  1. To log in to your UNW email, first log in to theROCK.
  2. Then click on the Email link in the upper right corner. (See image below)
  3. Your username will be your UNW email address, and your password will be the same one you use for theROCK.

That’s it! Many offices on campus use this email address, and you’ll especially want to use it as school gets closer and closer, so it’s best to check it out now.
