Secure Your Zoom Meetings
To help you keep your meetings secure and under your control, VCU's Information Security Office has created a helpful list of Zoom Meeting Security Guidelines. An informative article on the same subject can be found on Zoom's company blog.
If you have a VCU Zoom account, or need to create one, please login at vcu.zoom.us with your VCU credentials.
Zoom accounts are available to anyone with a valid "vcu.edu" eID.
Hospital personnel with "@vcuhealth.org" credentials may acquire and access Zoom accounts at vcuhealth.zoom.us
Test Your Device
To determine if your computing device supports participation in Zoom meetings, use the test link at https://zoom.us/test. You'll be able to test your camera, microphone and speaker before your planned meeting. You don't need an account to run the test.
