In order to purchase your TOTUM card with the Open University, we now require students to verify their student status via an Open University academic email.


To create your Open University academic email, please follow ALL of the steps laid out here


Once your Open University email account is successfully set up, you can return to the TOTUM purchase page and continue your application.


To do this, begin by typing ‘Open University Students’ Association’ into the drop-down bar.



You will then be able to verify your student status by submitting your Open University email address.



This will send an automated email to your Open University email account. By selecting the verification link in the email, you will be able to continue with your application and purchase your TOTUM card.


Please note; we no longer use PI codes to verify your Open University status.
