Zoom meetings will require all participants to sign in starting August 15th

Beginning Saturday, August 15th at 10 AM PST, all participants and hosts will be required to sign into a Zoom account prior to joining meetings hosted by UC Berkeley.

UC Berkeley Zoom Web/Video Conferencing

Faculty, Staff, Registered Students

As of March 2020, Zoom Licensed/Pro accounts (without add-ons) are now available for faculty, staff, and registered students due to instructional resilience coverage, free of direct charge. Click Sign In to get an account immediately. Licensed/Pro accounts allow unlimited meeting length.

Additionally, faculty and staff can request add-on services, including participants using toll-free numbers, in-meeting call-out, Webinar and Zoom Room Services. To request Zoom add-on services or a HIPAA-compliant Zoom account, submit a service request.

Non-registered Students

Anyone with a CalNet ID can get a free, Basic Zoom account. Basic accounts have some restrictions, including limiting the meeting to 40 minutes. The campus does not support free Basic accounts - Zoom supports Basic accounts.

HIPAA-compliant accounts

Those who have a HIPAA-compliant account should not log in at berkeley.zoom.us. Sign In here instead.
