COVID-19: Service Advisory

Required Services Only:
To limit the spread of COVID-19, YU-card operations have shifted to a required services model. Until further notice, in-person services are by appointment only and limited to those with immediate need for on-campus use such as door access, meal plan and/or Library curbside pickup.

Students, Faculty and Staff YU-cards: 
All applicants are required to apply for their YU-card online through the Photo Upload Service. Applicants are also encouraged to use the Mail Delivery Option to obtain their YU-card. In-person pick-up is not recommended and reserved for those with an immediate on-campus need. Please note: A YU-card is not mandatory for students enrolled in online only courses.

YU-card Expiry Extension:
YU-cards set to expire have been extended now to April 30, 2022. The YU-card Office will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and reassess needs for further extensions. 

For inquires, please email us at or call us at (416) 736-5674 during business hours.
