Below you will find some of the most commonly-used technology resources that are available to Rowan University students, including information about connecting to the Rowan network, email accounts, online services and computer repairs.
Getting ready for a new semester at Rowan? Follow our step-by-step online technology guide to digitally prepare yourself or download and print our technology checklist for students.
Usernames and Passwords
Students receive two accounts that they'll use to access the University's technology resources: a Rowan Network account and a Banner account.
Use your Network username and password to access WiFi, email, Blackboard and more. Your Network username is the first part of your email address before @students.rowan.edu. You can obtain your Rowan Network account information for the first time or change your password at id.rowan.edu.
Using the Rowan Network
We require students to install supported anti-virus software on their personal computers in order to connect to the Rowan Network. The University offers anti-virus software to students for free, and we highly recommend students use that software.
If you prefer to use your own anti-virus program, the following major anti-virus software programs have been tested and work on our network: McAfee, Symantec, Kaspersky, Norton and Trend.
Please do not install a new version of your anti-virus software right before the start of a new semester, as it may not yet be supported by our network.
Main Campus Students:
You can access Rowan Gmail for Students at mail.students.rowan.edu.

Computer Service and Repair
If you are having a problem with your computer, we have technicians available to assist you. The fastest way to get your computer repaired is to bring it to the Technology Assistance Center in Memorial Hall.
The Technology Assistance Center is open Monday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the semester. During the summer and semester breaks, the center is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
If you have a desktop computer, just bring the computer itself. The other parts, such as monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc., are not needed.
You can register for classes, access your grades and view your transcript online by visiting www.rowan.edu/selfservice and entering your Banner ID number and PIN.
You can find your Banner ID number and update your PIN at id.rowan.edu.
If you have any questions about how to use Self-Service Banner after you have logged in, please contact the Registrar's Office at 856.256.4360.
Log into Blackboard for Glassboro
Log into Blackboard for RowanSOM
Blackboard is online management software that helps students in their classes by creating, managing, organizing and housing a web-based learning environment.
On this site, faculty can post lecture notes and information, grades and past quizzes. Blackboard also contains a chat area and bulletin board and gives students around-the-clock access to information.
Television is available via coaxial cable in each residential unit. Televisions that don't have an internal digital tuner that supports Clear QAM will need an external tuner.
We also offer a streaming TV service that allows students to watch their favorite entertainment programming on almost any device.
Connecting Game Consoles
Students may wirelessly connect game consoles like PlayStation and Xbox and entertainment devices like Roku and Apple TV to the Rowan Network via RowanDevice.
You can find instructions for connecting those types of devices on our website.
