Setting up your Zoom account

This guide will document how to set up your account for users at Yale. If you already have a Zoom account set up using your Yale email address, following these steps will ensure that your account is associated with Yale's Zoom account and you have access to the full suite of Zoom features.

Create your Zoom account

The first step to creating your account, or associating your existing account, is to visit and select the "Sign in" button.

Once you select "Sign in", you will be prompted to log in through Yale's Central Authentication Service (CAS) using your NetID and password.

Logging in to Zoom uses Yale's Central Authentication Service (CAS). If you are off campus and logging in to Zoom you will need to utilize multi factor authentication (MFA) via DUO. If you need to set up MFA you can find information on how to do so on the Yale ITS page here.

Once you are logged in, your account is created and you will be taken to your Zoom profile page. If you had a pre-existing account using your Yale email, you will receive an email notifying you to accept the invitation to join the Yale Zoom account.
