How do I get a UTORid?

New Students

You will have received a flyer in your acceptance package that has directions for getting a TCard. When you visit the TCard office, you will be given your UTORid and a "SAK sheet".

Staff/Faculty

Staff or faculty hired by UofT (as opposed to one of the federated colleges) should contact their business officer.

Staff/Faculty of Federated Colleges

If you are a staff or faculty member of one of the federated colleges you will have to visit the business officer in your college to obtain your UTORid. Your business officer has a tool that allows him/her to upload you to our central database and retrieve a UTORid and SAK.

Contractors, Temporary Staff/Faculty, Visiting Professors

If you fall into one of these categories, (and do not appear in HRIS), the department you are working for should apply for a Long-Term Guest UTORid.

Existing Students/Staff/Faculty

All students, staff and faculty who are already part of UofT and did not get a UTORid in one of the ways mentioned above should visit the TCard office in Robarts Library. Bring your previous Library identification card or TCard, and the office will issue you a UTORid as well as a new TCard and SAK sheet.

Short-Term Visitor

If you are a visitor who requires a UTORid for a period of 5 days or less, you can be sponsored by a staff or faculty member for a Short-Term Guest UTORid.

Alumni

Alumni who already have a UTORid can keep using it after they graduate. Alumni who don't have a UTORid can get one by purchasing an Alumni Card. Click herefor more details.

Postgraduate Medical Education

If you are a part of the PGME program, take your letter of offer to the TCard office. The staff there will be able to print you a card that has your UTORid on it, and a SAK sheet.



The SAK

The Secret Activation Key is a one-use password that allows you to perform the initial setup of your UTORmail account (institutional email) and UTORid password. To use this SAK, please visit the activation page at https://www.utorid.utoronto.ca/.
