Changes to TCard

As of June 1st 2018, new and replacement TCards for staff, faculty and students will no longer have a contact chip on the front of the card, and the digital signature on the card will be replaced with a hand-written signature on the back. 
The updated TCard will also have contactless chip technology, which may be utilized in the future by services and systems on campus that upgrade their technical infrastructure. The encoded magnetic stripe will remain on the card and continue to be used. Mississauga conducted a successful TCard pilot employing tap card technology and has since implemented it widely.
The enhancements in the St. George and Scarborough TCard will allow for similar expansion in the future. Current TCards will not be replaced at this time, and the changes in new and replacement cards will not affect security practices regarding lock access. 
For more information about these changes, please contact Ursula Shail, Manager, TCard Administration, phone 416-946-8203 or email

Extended Hours at the Health and Wellness Centre

In an effort to respond to students’ needs and improve access to our services, the Health and Wellness Centre is extending its hours of operation.  Starting September 4, Thursday hours will be extended to 7:00 p.m. (This is in addition to the current Tuesday and Wednesday closing of 7:00 p.m.) On September 10, we are also introducing a primary care, same-day clinic from Monday to Friday in the afternoon. This clinic will offer brief appointments to address acute issues (and would not be appropriate for consultations or documentation requests).

(EXPANDED) Weekday hours: Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday open until 7:00 p.m.

(NEW) Same-Day clinic: Monday to Friday, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Please help us to make students aware of these changes when you direct them to our services.

Health & Wellness hours starting September 4, 2018:

  • The Health and Wellness Centre will open at 8:45 a.m.
  • Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday: 8:45 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
  • Monday and Friday: 8:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Starting Monday September 10, 2018:

  • Same-day clinic: Monday to Friday, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. – By appointment

These changes provide convenient and flexible appointment times, and give students in need of (medical) care the opportunity to see a provider on the same day.
