UC San Diego Zoom Web/Video Conferencing

To support the transition toward online instruction and increased telecommuting in response to Covid-19 (coronavirus) planning, we have provisioned all campus faculty, staff, teaching assistants and enrolled students with Zoom Pro Meeting accounts.

Zoom allows for video, audio, and screen sharing between participants. It can be used from any computer, laptop, tablet, or phone, and it works on PC, Mac, Android and iOS devices.

Anyone in the world can join a Zoom meeting, but only a host can start/schedule meetings.

Getting Started

1. Download Zoom for your computer or mobile device.

2. Click Sign In to claim your UC San Diego Zoom Pro account using Single Sign-On (SSO)

3. If you need to host webinars of any size, or to hold large meetings with more than 300 attendees, please submit a request for Zoom Large Meeting or Zoom Webinar  ADD-ON License. These licenses should be configured well in advance to avoid  issues.
