FANCard features

Student ID


This is your student identification card. It will be accepted as formal identification while you’re writing exams, used to access services on campus and may be requested by businesses in the community as proof of student status.


Building and room access


Use your FANCard to access after-hours building entrances, computer labs and specialized program-specific facilities. It is also used to access services such as the Test Centre, the Library and Learning Commons and the Office of the Registrar.


Flex Plan / Meal Plan


No need to handle cash, just load and use your FANCard! Purchases can be tracked online and unused balances can be carried over to the next academic year. Use your card for:

  • Food outlets on campus
  • Retail purchases
  • Printing
  • Photocopying
  • General parking lots (London Campus)


All students: load your Flex Plan with as little as $50.

Add money or review your Flex Plan account balance by logging into the FANCard account site


Residence students: Your mandatory Meal Plan starts at $1,200 with the option to purchase additional credit (in-person only) throughout the year, or you can add additional funds online to a Flex Plan.
