Eligibility for a U-M Zoom Account


U-M Zoom


Am I eligible for a U-M Zoom Account?  Who has access to the U-M Zoom license?


If you have at least one of the following affiliations, you are eligible for a Zoom account under the U-M license for as long as you hold that affiliation:

  • Students (from matriculation to either graduation or end of student status)
  • Faculty (including emeritus faculty, lecturers, and intermittent lecturers)
  • Staff (including Temporary Staff)
  • Sponsored affiliates with regular uniqnames (i.e. Type 1 and 2 Sponsored Affiliates, strong identities)

The following affiliations are not eligible for a Zoom account under the U-M license, if you do not have any of the roles from the previous list:

  • Alumni
  • Retirees
  • Sponsored affiliates with uniqnames starting with "um" and followed by numbers (i.e. Type 3 Sponsored Affiliates, weak identities)
  • Friend accounts

Additionally, MCommunity groups and shared accounts are not eligible to access Zoom under the U-M license. Sharing a Zoom account with multiple people is a violation of Zoom's terms of service, as well as a violation of U-M's agreement with Zoom.
