Zoom at UCLA
Zoom is UCLA's choice for video and web conferencing. Through a system-wide license agreement, the University of California has negotiated a significant discount off the regular price of a Zoom Pro account. On May 21, 2017, management of the UCLA Zoom accounts transitioned to Software Central.
UCLA Zoom Account Types
Upon signing in with your UCLA ID and password, all UCLA users are automatically provided a no-cost Zoom Basic Account. Upgrade options are available to provide extended functionality. Types of accounts include:
Obtaining a Zoom Account
If your academic department participates in the UCLA Common Collaboration and Learning Environment (CCLE), you are eligible for a UCLA/Zoom Pro Account.
If your department does not participate in the CCLE and your department would like to obtain UCLA/Zoom Pro Accounts, please visit Software Central for more information and ordering directions.
Note: Zoom accounts are only required to host a meeting. Anyone can attend a Zoom meeting by simply using the appropriate link or Meeting ID from the meeting host.
Hosting Zoom Meetings
Zoom is licensed for University (not personal) use, and there are two methods of accessing and using Zoom:
You can host Zoom meetings by adding the Zoom activity to a CCLE site.
To host meetings outside the CCLE, UCLA/Zoom Pro Account licenses are available from Software Central through department recharge for a nominal fee.
Additional Zoom features can be purchased through Software Central to extend Pro accounts.
