Depending on the type of work your role involves, your faculty or staff online identity will give you access to a number of online resources.

Activating your online identity

Your online identity can be activated 24 hours after you’re hired by Ryerson. During the activation process, you’ll select your my.ryerson username, which will also serve as your ryerson.ca email username.

Getting started

If you already have a Ryerson online identity, log in to the my.ryerson portal and proceed through the prompts.

If you do not have a Ryerson online identity, start the process by completing the online identity activation form. Have your Ryerson employee number ready - this can be found in your offer letter from the university.

The online identity activation form is unavailable due to system maintenance daily from 3:00 a.m. to 5:30 a.m. ET.

Important security note: If you need to step away from the computer before completing the online identity activation form, be sure to close your browser to prevent others from tampering with your account setup.

Troubleshooting activation issues

Once you’ve begun the activation process, immediate solutions to common issues can be found by clicking the “Online Identity Activation FAQs” link at the bottom of the activation form.
