The YU-card is York University’s official photo ID and payment card that will grant you access to libraries, recreation facilities and more. Using your YU-card for purchases is fast and convenient – just load funds on your card and use it at participating locations across campus, such as the bookstore and restaurants.

Getting your YU-card is quick and easy. Here are the steps to getting your first card:

  • upload a passport-style photo on the application page;
  • send your image for approval;
  • download the eAccounts app on your mobile device via the App Store, for iPhone users, or Google Play Store, for Android users;
  • look out for email updates regarding your application status.

Official Examination Identification

You must present identification during your examination period. As York continues its transition to mobile YU-cards, students with a digital version should also bring alternate government-issued ID with a photo.

Follow the guidance of the exam invigilator/instructor on the use of mobile YU-cards and the placement of mobile phones during exams.
