TCards are not required if you are studying remotely. All students must still activate their UTORid (instructions below).
What's the difference between my TCard and UTORid?
New Students: Spring/Summer & Fall 2023
Students must have their status as 'Invited' or 'Registered' on ACORN to book an appointment to activate UTORid and/or pick up their TCard via CLNx .

How to get your UTORid and TCard:
Step 1: Log into CLNx. On the left-hand menu bar go to:
Appointments > TCard > Book by Appointment Type > E) Scarborough Registrar's Office TCard In-Person Appointment > Select a time slot under "Next Available Appointments" in the righthand menu.
Step 2: Bring the appropriate legal status documentation with you to campus on the day of your appointment.
Students who started studying at UTSC in 2020 or 2021 may still need to verify legal status even if their UTORid is activated and they have received a TCard. Please check your email to determine if you are one of these students.
If your current legal status does not match the status indicated on ACORN, the TCard Office will not be able to verify your status. Contact our Front Line team for assistance to make the appropriate update.
How to book an appointment to verify legal status:
Step 1: Log in to CLNx. Go to: Appointments > TCard > Book by Appointment Type > E) Scarborough Registrar's Office TCard In-Person Appointment > Select a time slot under "Next Available Appointments" in the righthand menu
Step 3: Bring the appropriate identity and legal status documents at the time of your appointment. The TCard Office is only able to verify documentation that is valid and original (digital or photocopies are not accepted). The legal name displayed on your documentation must match how your name is displayed on the University’s records (view your name in ACORN).
Access the UTSC Library
You can access the UTSC Library by providing a Canadian government-issued photo ID or a passport and your student number.
Access the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre
You will need a 16-digit library barcode to access the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre without a TCard:
Login to the UTORid Information site to locate your library barcode.
Create a self-service account through tpasc.ca/self-service-portal. You will need both your student number and 16-digit barcode to create an account.
Install the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre app. You will need your barcode and student number to activate your account through the app. Please ensure you have created/activated your self-service account before setting up your TPASC App account. Scan the app to access TPASC.
Step 1: Disable services on your TCard.
If you are not immediately replacing it:
1. Report your lost TCard to the Library at 416-978-7694 or visit the circulation desk of any U of T library.
2. If you have a meal plan or printing funds on your TCard, you can deactivate your TCard+ funds using the Online Meal Plan Management System (log in with your UTORid or click on Lost TCard). You can also report the loss to email@example.com or 416-978-1309.
Step 2: Book an appointment with the TCard Office. Log into CLNx. On the left-hand menu bar go to:

Please bring any lost TCards to the Office of the Registrar so we can alert the student that their card has been found.
