Upcoming Change to Zoom Meetings

To: Campus Faculty, Staff, and Students

From: Lisa Bono, Information Technology Services

To further improve the security of Zoom meetings, Zoom will be making a change on Sept. 27 that requires all meetings to have a Passcode or a Waiting Room enabled. ITS is getting in front of this change to help with support and questions that might come up before online instruction begins, so we'll be implementing the change in advance of Sept. 27 as follows:
  • Sept. 4 - All Zoom accounts for instructors, TAs, grad researchers
  • Sept. 9 - All Zoom accounts for staff
  • Sept. 16 - All Zoom accounts for students
I will be sending additional communication to each group before the change takes place with lots of details. If you wish to read about what Zoom is changing, visit their FAQ page.
