Zoom Instructions

How do I get a Zoom account?

Zoom accounts are available by request for all William James College staff and faculty. Once you have an account, it will remain active for the duration of the school year. We periodically check usage and pause Zoom accounts that have been inactive. If this happens, you can always request an account again when you need it.

If you don't already have a Zoom account, you can email Caroline Foley at caroline_foley@williamjames.edu to request one. 

While we are unable to offer Zoom accounts to students at this time, Zoom has a free account option. While it has some limitations, it can be a great option. See https://zoom.us/ for more details.

How do I get to my William James Zoom account?

Go to https://williamjames.zoom.us/ to log in.

If you think you will want to use Zoom frequently, we recommend bookmarking this page for future reference.

Zoom is NOT connected to OneLogin so you cannot access it through it. Additionally, since it is not associated with OneLogin, your log in credentials might not be the same.
