Zoom, UNC’s video and web conferencing tool, is available to all students, faculty, and staff. Zoom allows for video, audio, and screen sharing for up to 100 participants. It can be used from any computer, laptop, tablet, or mobile device. Zoom also works with rooms equipped for video conferencing.

If you’re brand new to Zoom at UNC, take a look at Zoom Getting Started for instructions on how to set up your account.
It’s a good idea to install that software ahead of time so it doesn’t delay your first meeting; however, if you haven’t yet done that, Zoom will automatically start downloading the application to your device when you click on a meeting link. You’ll need to install it before you can start your meeting.
