Does the University of Michigan have a Zoom license?

Yes. As of 2020-03-17, the University of Michigan has signed a license agreement with Zoom.

IMPORTANT: If you already have your own Zoom instance, ITS (4help@umich.edu) will need to work with each one of you to migrate your users into our zoom.umich.edu environment. For now, please continue using your current implementation of Zoom. You should continue to login to Zoom directly and not via the new U-M portal. Do not log-in to the zoom.umich.edu environment, if you meet the criteria above.

Where can I find information about using this service?

You can find the link to all the current ITS documentation on Zoom on the ITS site.

How do I log into Zoom?

Go to zoom.umich.edu or download the Zoom application at Zoom.us/download. Refer to the Getting Started page for more information.

If using the application:

  1. Click on the "Sign In with SSO" button in the Sign In window.
  2. Enter umich in the Company Domain box so that the address will read umich.zoom.us, and click Continue. This will bring you to a Umich Zoom website.
  3. Click on the button called "Launch with Zoom" or "Open Zoom" depending on your web browser. The Zoom application should then open with your account logged in.
  4. To confirm, click on your initials in the box in the top-right corner of the window. You should see "Licensed" at the top of the drop-down menu that appears.

Sensitive Data with Zoom

At this time the University of Michigan does not have a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with Zoom, protections for PHI (Private Health Information) or other forms of sensitive data. BlueJeans is the recommended campus videoconferencing tool for meetings that will contain sensitive data until these agreements are reached with Zoom.
