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 the 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.


IITS stopped issuing new UTSCIDs as of 2016. Students are issued UTORid only (no UTSCid) which can be used to access all IT resources.Visitors momentarily needing to use a computer to browse the web may do so at the public workstations located in front of the Circulation desk in the Library. These computers will not prompt for a user name or password.

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.

U of T students who regularly attend STG or UTM campus can use UTSC's computer lab workstations if they fill out the Visitor's webform. Use your UTORid credentials when prompted. This access is extended for one academic term. If access is needed in future terms, fill out the form again. 

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.

To view the amount of available storage for your UTSCid, use this page.
