How do I activate my UTORid?

After obtaining your UTORid information, take note of the “Secret Activation Key” field. If there is something in there (a set of characters), you need to activate your UTORid.


  1. Open a web browser (i.e., Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.)
  2. Go to:
  3. Click the Activate Button


Please follow the instructions closely. During the activation process, you will be asked to setup a U of T email account, as well as your UTORid password. We also recommend you select the account recovery option, so that you will be able to recover your password online if you ever forget it. Make sure that you follow the instructions and go through the entire process. The last screen should say “Your activation request has been accepted…“.


If your “Secret Activation Key" is blank that means you have been issued a UTORid previously. Please use the UTORid and the password you chose when you first activated it.
