The UVic ONECard is the single official identification card for the University of Victoria community. It incorporates many systems and services throughout the university under one card.
As long as you're a current student, faculty, staff, retiree or alumni, your ONECard will be an important piece of identification on campus. Learn more about the ONECard and how to get your ONECard.
Load your ONECard and use it as a debit card (with no fees attached) at many point of sale systems across campus. Watch for updates on new services to be added in phases.
If you received your card prior to May 2014 and you are currently a student, faculty/staff/alumni or retiree of UVic, you can go to the ONECard office (University Centre) to get your new UVic ONECard now. The University strongly encourages you to replace your old card with the new ONECard as soon as possible. This older UVic card is no longer active as of September 1, 2014. We have been re-carding the UVic community since April 2014 and will continue to do so until all older cards are all replaced.
To get your ONECard, you must be registered in a UVic course or currently faculty/staff/alumni or retiree of UVic. And, you will be asked to present a valid piece of government issue photo identification.
