Once you load funds onto your TCard you will be able to use it as a payment card for purchases at participating vendors on and off campus.

TBucks is a flexible account on your TCard that can be loaded with any amount of funds at any time. TBucks is used to pay for textbooks, food, vending, laundry, for goods and services at various departments and at select off campus merchants. Also, TBucks is the only way to pay for printing at photocopying at U of T St. George and Scarborough. TCard+ Merchants vary from campus to campus, please click here for a detailed list of TCard+ Merchants available at your campus.

If you add funds to your TCard (TBucks and other Associated Accounts) and you do not use those funds for a period of 15 months or longer from the end of the month in which you added the funds, we may charge a monthly inactivity fee of up to $2.50 per month until either (1) you reactivate your TBucks account (i.e. you add funds to your TCard or make a purchase using your TCard) or (2) your TBucks balance is depleted.
If due to Academic Suspension or Leave of Absence, you require an extension to the 15- month period referred to above, you must provide notice with supporting documentation to TCard+ in writing at email@example.com prior to your extended leave.
Unfortunately, cash withdrawal, advances of funds, or cash back from your TCard+ account(s) is not permitted.
