Getting around

The Laissez-passer universitaire-LPU (U-pass) is a public transit pass available only to full-time students at Université Laval. It offers unlimited access to the regular services of Réseau de transport de la Capitale (RTC) and Société de transport de Lévis (STLévis) for the fall and winter semesters. It is one of the mandatory institutional fees, and is automatically charged to all full-time students.

  • Fall semester: valid from September 1 to December 31
  • Winter semester: January 1 to April 30

Full time students

If you are already registered for your first semester of study, you can order your LPU (U-pass) on monPortail once you have submitted your photo for the production of the Université Laval ID card. The U-Pass can be mailed only to addresses in Québec.

If you have reserved a room in residence but do not know your room number yet, you can pick your U-Pass up at the reception desk when you arrive at your residence hall.

Visiting students

If you are a visiting student (exchange student), your LPU membership is optional. You will automatically receive an email within a few weeks of registering for your classes with information on how to apply for your LPU membership and a certificate that will allow you to do so.
