Request or Retrieve Your Ryerson Student Number

You will be asked to provide your legal name, home address, email address, and other information required by law. We will not require you to provide any information other than what is necessary to create your unique Ryerson Online Identity.

For more information about the use of your personal data and your privacy rights, please review the Confidentiality of Student Records statement for the Ryerson University Student Number Request.

Request or Retrieve a Ryerson Student Number

How it Works

  • Complete the online form to request a Ryerson Student Number. You will immediately receive an email confirmation with your Ryerson Student Number details and a link to the Ryerson Online Identity Activation page to the email address provided on the request form.

    Important: Submitting this form will create an active continuing education academic career to allow you to enrol in courses. This process is not for current or former students who wish to retrieve a forgotten Ryerson Student Number.
  • To ensure a unique identity within our database, further validation may be required; in these situations, you will normally receive your Ryerson Student Number details within two business days (Monday–Friday) of your request. This may take longer during peak times at the beginning and end of term.
