TCard & UTORid Information

What is a TCard?  

Your TCard is your identification for academic purposes. It includes your photo, UTORid, student number (or personnel number for staff and faculty) and a barcode. It provides access to services and facilities such as libraries, athletic facilities, exams, meal plans, online learning portal, printing services, and more.  

What is a UTORid? 

Your UTORid and password give you access to online services like email* (UTMail+), ACORN, portal, library services, campus wireless network and others. For students, it’s the same as your JOINid, which you’ve received in previous communications, but once activated, your UTORid provides access to additional online services. For staff, it also provides you access to Employee Self Service and other departmental and institutional services.
