Official Identification & Door Access

Occasionally, a member of the TMU Security might ask that you provide a valid form of identification (such as your OneCard) where such information is relevant to the legitimate pursuit of their duties. Additional representatives of the university, including exam invigilators, may also ask for your OneCard. 

Door access

Your OneCard also functions as an access card that grants access to university buildings,  spaces and services.

By holding your OneCard up against an access reader, the chip embedded in the card will grant access for authorized areas. Doors will unlock once the reader flashes twice. Please be sure to hold your card against the reader long enough for the locks to disengage. 

If the reader beeps and the door does not unlock it means you don’t have access to that space. If you require door access to a building and/or room, please contact your department for authorization.

If you hold your card against a reader and the reader does not beep it means the card is defective and needs to be replaced. This can be done free of charge by visiting the OneCard Office.
