Student ID card

Your Concordia ID is the official campus identification for students. It also gives you access to many on-campus services and discounts! 

A student ID card lets you borrow materials from the Library, use on-campus DPrint printers, hop on the shuttle bus, get an Opus reduced-fare transit pass, and more!

Getting your student ID

  1. Register for at least one course.
    New students: You can get your ID a month before the term begins (e.g. Fall 2024, you can get your ID as of August 2024). 
  2. Drop by Card Services where staff will take your photo and issue your card within minutes. (We do not accept digital photos.):

If you plan to take public transit 
The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) uses your student ID card photo to create your transit pass, the OPUS card. Log into My CU account to submit an OPUS card request 24 hours after you get your student ID. To qualify for an OPUS card, you must have a home address in Quebec saved in your Student Centre and you must be enrolled in full-time studies. Note that wait-listed courses do not count towards enrolment.
