Obtaining your uOttawa card in person

Getting your uOttawa card in person is simple. Keep in mind that during registration in September and January, wait times may be longer; therefore, we encourage students to apply for their uOttawa cards on line.

When and where you can pick up your uOttawa card

Valid pieces of photo identification are required to pick up your uOttawa card. Although your uOttawa card is automatically renewed whenever you register for courses, you will notice that your card has an expiry date printed on the back. You must keep your card for the duration of your studies at the University of Ottawa. 

When:

  • As soon as you are registered for courses.

 Where: 

  • InfoService or the uOttawa Card Service.
