University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP)

The University Health Insurance Plan is a mandatory health insurance plan for all international and exchange students enrolled in an Ontario university. UHIP helps to cover the cost of hospital and medical services you may need to maintain your health while in Canada. You are automatically enrolled in UHIP, and the coverage charge will be listed on ROSI/ACORN, your student account.

Email Accounts

The University has approved the Policy on Official Correspondence with Students effective Sept 2006. Only University-issued email accounts will be accepted by the Student Web Service. Please create your University-issued email accounts and record the University email address in ACORN (formerly ROSI). Access to the University's student portal and learning management system requires the UTORID username and password provided when the T-Card is created. Students must activate the UTORID in order to access the services and course information hosted on the portal.
