STEP 8: Get Accounts and ID

As a U of M student, you are given access to various services and accounts.  Some services, such as borrowing library books, require the use of a Student ID Card.  Other services are offered through online accounts, which you will have to activate once you have registered for courses.

Get your Student ID Card

Newly admitted students are eligible for a Student ID Card free of charge; you do not need to be registered in courses. ID Card services have moved online.See: Student ID Cards.

U of M Email Account

Don't miss important messages affecting your registration and fees. Activate your @myumanitoba email account. 

Please note:

  • The U of M sends communications with current students to their U of M email account, including course Waitlist notifications.
  • You are strongly encouraged to activate your UofM email account as soon as possible (48 hours after accepting your offer of admission), and no later than 48 hours prior to registering for courses.

More information:

Returning students: If you have taken some time away from the U of M, your email and other accounts may have become inactive in your absence.  Returning students should verify that they can access and use their U of M email account; if you encounter errors logging in, you may have to reactivate your account.

For help with your computer accounts, please contact the IST Help & Solutions Centre.
