Zoom : Video Conferencing on Computers and Mobile Devices

DePaul Faculty, Staff and Students all have access to Zoom. Faculty members can setup Zoom meetings for their classes, and then invite students to the meeting. See the information below under "Using Zoom integrated through D2L".

Get Started

Step One: Before you can begin using Zoom, you will need to activate your DePaul Zoom account. Visit the Zoom website, click the Sign in button, and you will be redirected to a login screen. This DePaul login page accepts usernames in both BlueKey (username@depaul.edu and password) and Campus Connect (username only, without @depaul.edu) formats. This will create your account in Zoom, which will be associated with your primary DePaul University email address.

Step Two: Go to the Zoom Download Center page.  This page has Zoom download options for computers and mobile devices.
