These UTORids are available to persons who have a long-term (greater than 5 days) relationship to the University of Toronto, such as visiting staff/faculty and contractors. This procedure can also be used to add status to a UTORid you already own.


To obtain this type of UTORid for a person working with your department (or to provide status to their already existing UTORid), please send them with a letter of introduction from your department to the Reader Registration Desk on the second floor of Robarts Library. The letter should include at least the following pieces of information:

  • must be written on a departmental letterhead
  • the name and birthdate of your contractor
  • the length of their appointment with U of T
  • the name and address of your department

In addition to this letter, the applicant should bring valid photo identification. If your guest is accepted by Reader Registration, a UTORid and TCard will be issued immediately (or status extended to their already existing UTORid).
