Welcome

Congratulations, and welcome to the RCSI community of over 20,000 Alumni worldwide.

Graduation marks the end of your College experience and the beginning of a new chapter in your life and your relationship with RCSI. The Alumni Relations Team will help you to stay in touch with RCSI and with your classmates and peers through ongoing communication and events.

This page will give you some quick links to useful services but take a look around the website to get a sense of all the Alumni Relations Team have on offer.

Meet the Team

And please keep in touch – call, email, connect with us on LinkedIn, like us on Facebook, follow us on Instagram or simply drop in. Our offices are located on the ‘Green’ at 111 St Stephen’s Green.

There is always a ‘welcome’ on the mat.

RCSI Email Access

All RCSI Alumni are able to retain their @rcsi.ie email account post-graduation. This service is provided through a partnership with Google Apps.

What does this mean?

After graduation, RCSI’s IT Department will transfer your RCSI email account and its contents to an RCSI Gmail account. This migration will take place in post-graduation; you will be notified of the exact switchover date and your new password in advance. Your email address will remain the same.

Please note the following:

  • From the date of the move onwards you will access your email via the following link: http://alumni.rcsi.ie
  • All of your mail, including archived mail, calendar and contacts will be transferred to your new account on the switchover date.
  • During the switchover, there may be a period of several hours where you will not have access to your existing emails.

NOTE: If you plan to continue your studies at RCSI, please contact the RCSI Helpdesk at helpdesk@rcsi.ie to submit a request to prevent your RCSI email from being migrated to Gmail. This is important because as soon as your account is migrated, your emails will no longer be available on the RCSI domain.

If you have any queries about this process please contact the IT Helpdesk:
