Ryerson Student Portal, Email and OneCard

Your online identity is important! This username and password is used to access your Ryerson email, register for courses and log into computers on campus. When you accessed your RAMSS account to review your Communications section, you also went through the process of activating your online identity. If you have not done this step, activate your Ryerson Online Identity right now.

Although you can activate your online identity as soon as you receive your letter of acknowledgment, you will have limited access to RAMSS and other online systems until August 1.

After August 1, you will be prompted to create your Ryerson email address when you log into my.ryerson.ca. It is important that you do this as soon as possible, as all official university communications will be sent there. Remember to check it frequently!

All new students are required to use two-factor authentication to access Ryerson services. This will require students to have either a mobile phone that can run Google Authenticator or a Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) key. U2F keys are available for purchase online or in some stores.

More information on two-factor, including setup information can be found on the Computing and Communications Services (CCS) Two-Factor Authentication website.

The OneCard is your official Ryerson identification card and serves as a convenience card for many of the services on campus including the Library, Athletic Centre, printing and photocopying, food purchases, discounts and more.

New students must apply for their OneCard online between June 1st and August 15th. This can be done through the OneCard website.

Your online identity was created when you first accessed your Choose>Ryerson portal as an applicant. If you did not complete this step, please activate your Ryerson Online Identity right now.

To pick up your OneCard, you must present one of the following pieces of identification: Passport, Driver’s License, Ontario Photo ID Card, OHIP/Health Card with Picture Secured Certificate of Indian Status, or Permanent Residence Card. Your Ryerson student number is also required.

A passport is also required if you do not possess any ID issued by a Canadian Federal, Provincial or Territorial government.

All forms of identification must be original, current and valid. The name on your document(s) must match the primary name on file with the University.
