Student Checklist

1. Set up your TMU online identity

Without this, you will not be able to access any student systems, including Service Hub to enroll in classes. Visit the Undergraduate Student Guide website for more information.

2. Get your Student OneCard

Your Student OneCard is one of the most important tools you’ll need while at TMU. Not only is it your official student identification, it also grants you access to campus services and discounts.

You can use your OneCard to take out materials from the Library, access buildings and labs, use photocopiers and equipment, and much more. Visit the OneCard website to learn more and get your card.
