Action Items

You are part of a University Community now and we have got your back in transitioning to campus life! Let’s start with some action items to organize important next steps and contact information:


Set Up and Utilize Your Saint Peter’s University Student Email Account

Your student email address and log-in information are included in the Enrollment Guide Packet sent to your home address. This will be the ONLY email the University will use to communicate with you during the next steps of enrollment and while you’re part of the Saint Peter’s community, so it’s critical you activate it. In some cases, you may still be receiving information to the email you provided during the application process so please remember to check both accounts throughout the summer.

You are encouraged to start using your Saint Peter’s University email account today! Remember, check the letter you received in the mail to locate your email address and temporary password. You will need to reset the temporary password to one that is your own. To do this, go to https://reset.saintpeters.edu/react and follow the instructions.

If you have questions about your email address and temporary password, please contact Kacey Tillotson at ktillotson@saintpeters.edu or the IT Service Desk at servicedesk@saintpeters.edu.
