The YU-card is York University’s official photo ID and campus debit card. The YU-card serves as your photo ID for exams, your library card, and your access card to recreation facilities. You can load up your YU-card with money and use it as a debit card at participating locations across campus. Using your YU-card for purchases is fast and convenient–perfect for students on the go!

Getting your YU-card is easy. Bring your student number and one piece of valid government-issued photo ID (acceptable photo ID includes passports, driver’s licences, citizenship cards, etc.) to the YU-card Office while you are on campus for your advising appointment. We will take your photo (or you can upload it in advance) and you will receive your card on the spot. Best of all, your first YU-card is free! To learn more, visit the YU-card website.
