Zoom Video Communications provides audio/web and video-conferencing in a simple, easy-to-use format.

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 license.

: If your are part of UCLA Health, please sign in at https://uclahs.zoom.us to create your Zoom account.

Obtaining a Zoom License

If you hold an active appointment in a participating Common Collaboration and Learning Environment (CCLE) department sign in to activate your UCLA/Zoom Pro license.

If your department does not participate in the CCLE and your department would like to obtain UCLA/Zoom Pro licenses, please visit Software Central for more information and ordering directions.

Note: Zoom licenses 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. We have developed some support tips on managing Zoom session participants.

Hosting Zoom Meetings

Zoom is licensed for University (not personal) use, and there are two methods of accessing and using Zoom:

Through CCLE

You can host Zoom meetings by adding the Zoom activity to a CCLE site.

Outside CCLE

To host meetings outside the CCLE, UCLA/Zoom Pro licenses are available from Software Central through department recharge for a nominal fee.

Users with a Pro license can host meetings by signing in and launching the Zoom application.

Upgrade Options

Additional Zoom upgrade features can be purchased through Software Central to extend Pro licenses.
