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 . . .

. . .your library card

. . .your access to activity centres

  • Hart House, Athletic Centre, Goldring Centre

. . . your access to use student services

  • Health and Wellness Centre, Career Centre, Housing Centre, and more

. . . got a computer chip that holds money

. . . used for discounts

. . . what you show to write exams.

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 take your picture, create your TCard, and give you a card with a secret activation key. You don’t want to lose this. You need it to set up your UTmail+.

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


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.
