Creating UTORid:

UTORid For Visitors:

Setting up computer access for new hires 

To speed up the set up of account and desktop for a newly hired staff, please ensure the following is done as soon as start date is determined:

  • Provide the new staff's UTORid as soon as possible to the Staff & Faculty Helpdesk to set it up for computer authentication.
  • If a new computer is needed, please obtain an eQuote from Helpdesk and specify start date for the new employee

Visiting lecturers who need access to intranet should get in touch with their department's administrative assistant. Faculty with TAs from another campus should request intranet accounts for their TAs by sending an email to Staff & Faculty Helpdesk.



How do I check if my UTORid is functioning correctly?

You can verify the functionality of your UTORid using this form(link is external).  Any problems that may have existed with the account should be fixed afterwards.

I am a student from St. George or UTM. May I use the Computer Labs?

Non-U of T Scarborough students can obtain visitors cards from the Reference desk in the library or from the Student Support Desk in B487.

Can I get a temporary UTORid?

IITS does not issue any temporary UTORid's. All U of T Students should have their own account.   If you are a visitor staying for less than five days, a U of T staff member can then sponsor you an account.
