Students starting in Winter 2020 will be able to get their TCard beginning December 1, 2019.

Visit How to Get Your First TCard page to find out what types of documents you need. A TCard will not be issued unless your documentation matches your legal status.




The TCard is your gateway to life at University of Toronto. Much more than a simple ID, this card gives you discounts, access to library resources and secure areas, entry to gym facilities, meal plans, printing, entrance to events on campus, and more.

Get Started



Documentation Required

All new students must bring in documentation validating their identity & legal status in Canada in order to obtain their first TCard. A TCard will not be issued unless your documentation matches your legal status.

The identity document must have been issued by a federal, provincial or territorial government authority and must be both valid (not expired) and original. Original documents do not include those that have been photocopied, faxed or digitally scanned.

If you are an University of Toronto undergraduate/graduate student or staff/faculty, please visit Documentation Required to find out what documents will satisfy these requirements.



School of Continuing Studies Students

A TCard is available free of charge to any student who is taking a course with the School of Continuing Studies. In order to arrange to have a TCard authorization letter prepared for you, please visit TCard Permission Letter Request page.



If You Are a Visitor

Visitors, if you have not been given either a personnel number or a UTORid and have not been entered through the University of Toronto’s Human Resources Information System but are required to have access to U of T services, including Library services, you will need to provide a letter from a University of Toronto sponsor. In the letter, university sponsor will be asked to state the purpose of the sponsored guest account, the name and date of birth of the visitor, start and end date of the employment/visit along with the sponsor's contact information. The letter needs to be signed and dated by the sponsoring faculty or staff member and printed on letterhead. Acceptable university-sponsored visitors include: conference and workshop attendees, guest lecturers, business partners, vendors, translators, visiting scholars, post-doctoral fellows etc.

To request a temporary guest account, a sponsoring faculty or staff member can either visit the UTM's IITS Service Desk or submit a ticket using self-service via ServiceNow with the letter attached to the ticket.

The guest account information will be released to the sponsors who will be responsible for the accounts while they are active. The IITS Service Desk will securely provide the guest account information to the visitor(s) once they arrive on campus.

Visit Long Term and Short Term UTORid’s for more information.
