Zoom Instructions

How do I get a Zoom account?


Zoom accounts are automatically available to all William James College faculty. 


Zoom accounts are available to some qualifying staff members by request.  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. You can email support@williamjames.edu to see if you qualify for a Zoom account.


We do not offer Zoom accounts to students.

While we are unable to offer Zoom accounts to students and all staff at this time, there are a number of options for video calls. Our top suggestions would be to use Teams, available to everyone at WJC, or create a free Zoom account.

If you are interested in Teams, please see support@williamjames.edu for more details.

If you are interested in a free Zoom account, see https://zoom.us/ for more details. 

How do I get to my William James Zoom account?

Zoom is accessed via OneLogin.

For those who have registered for free Zoom accounts with William James College emails, you can still access your account via Zoom.us and sign in with those credentials.
