How to get your TCard and Setup UTMAIL+

Every Faculty of Arts and Science student has to have a TCard and a UTmail+ email account. You need the TCard to set up your UTmail+ email account.

The TCard is a photo ID smart card. It’s also:

You get your TCard in person at the TCard Office in the Koffler Student Services Centre (214 College Street)* during their hours of operation. Whether you are a domestic or international student, you need to bring your print or email offer of admission as well a government-issued piece of identification with your photo on it.

Once you’re all set up, they’ll give you a card with a secret activation key. You don’t want to lose this. You need it to set up your UTmail+.

After you obtained your TCard, now activate your UTORid and get your UTmail+ account.

This is the University’s official way of contacting you. It’s the only email that the FAS will use to contact students.

You activate your UTmail+ online using

  • your UTORid and
  • the Secret Activation Key (SAK) you got with your TCard.

Activate it here.

UTmail+ gives you an impressive email account with 1TB (yes, a terabyte) of memory for inbox and file storage.

Final note

If you’re not in Toronto until September, don’t worry. You can easily get your TCard and your UTmail+ email when you arrive.

But if you’re in the area, you can get your TCard (and then sign up for UTmail+) now!




(**UPDATE: the TCard office is no longer located at Robarts Library, it has moved to the Koffler Student Services Centre)
