Connect to Zoom

San Jose State University uses Zoom for web conferencing. Zoom includes an instant message tool which expands communication options for students and faculty members.

Each student and faculty member has their own Zoom personal meeting “room.” This room can be used for meetings. Meeting participants do not have to be affiliated with SJSU nor do they have to have Zoom accounts to join a meeting. Recordings can be made in the Zoom meetings and saved to the host’s computer. Faculty members also have an option to record to the cloud. 

You should not set up an individual account at Always use for access in order to enjoy the benefits of the Pro account SJSU has provided you.
