How do I get my Student ID Card?
Instructions and requirements for obtaining your ID card can be found on the website.
First-year students can pick up their student ID card in the summer (once they've accepted their offer of admission) to avoid lineups during Residence Move-In Weekend and Orientation Week. They can be picked up from Enrolment Services (University Centre, Level 3) during office hours with the required citizenship and identification documentation. Students should submit their photo online at least 5 business days before their visit.
