What is the schedule for the shuttle bus? Where can I take the shuttle bus?
The Parking and Sustainable Transportation office manages a free shuttle service for students and employees that need to commute to and from the University of Ottawa's downtown campus, Saint Paul University and Roger-Guindon Hall. The shuttle service is intended to ease commutes, reduce parking demands and encourage sustainable methods of transportation.
Student identity cards are the property of the University and are required to borrow books from the University libraries, to gain access to sports facilities and to make use of a variety of student services. The card must also be presented for identification during examination sessions.
If you are a new student, you can obtain your card at InfoService (Tabaret Hall) upon presentation of proof of enrolment (approved enrolment form or proof of payment).
If you would like to pick up your student card at the Roger-Guindon campus, visit the Faculty of Medicine Graduate Studies Office (RGN room 2016). We will sign a form stating that you are enrolled. You can then go to Docucentre (RGN2010) where your picture will be taken and your student card will be printed.
You must retain your card for the duration of your studies at the University of Ottawa.
The card is not valid if you are not enrolled.
A graduate student ID sticker for the student card is available from InfoService or from the Graduate Students' Association (GSAED).
If you wish to opt out of the health and/or dental plan, the only way to do so is via your uoZone account, by selecting InfoWeb, Finances and Health insurance.

A confirmation will be sent to you and a credit will be applied automatically to your uOttawa student account.
