Updated on

Zoom is one of Yale University's web conference solution. Every member of the Yale community is able to acquire a Zoom account using their Yale email address. This guide will document how to set up your Zoom account for new Zoom users at Yale University.

If you already have a Zoom account set up using your Yale email address and that account is not associated with Yale's enterprise license of Zoom, following these steps will ensure that your account is associated with Yale's Zoom account and you have access to the full suite of Zoom features.

  1. Visit and select the "Sign in" button.
  1. You will be prompted to log in through Yale's Central Authentication Service (CAS) using your NetID and password.

Logging in to Zoom uses Yale's Central Authentication Service (CAS). If you are off campus and logging in to Zoom you will need to utilize Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) via DUO. If you need to set up MFA you can find information on how to do so on the Yale ITS page here.

  1. Once you are logged in, your account is created and you will be taken to your Zoom profile page.

If you had a pre-existing account using your Yale email, you will receive an email notifying you to accept the invitation to join the Yale Zoom account.
