How to Request Zoom Accounts for TA and Paid Students
UBC has a campus-wide license for Zoom as a platform for delivering courses online and larger meetings. Zoom is an easy-to-use video conferencing platform that offers a wide range of features. For more information on the service, please visit: https://it.ubc.ca/zoom
Zoom is available to all UBC Employees (faculty, staff, and paid students), for meeting and collaboration purposes, as well as for live online classes of up to 250 attendees. To meet the eligibility requirements, the meeting host must have the following:
- CWL with an active employee status
- An active Faculty and Staff ( FASmail ) mailbox
- A firstname.lastname@example.org FASmail alias
Link Employee ID to CWL
Before Student Employees and Teaching assistants can request a Zoom account, they need to ensure that their Employee ID is affiliated with their CWL identity and they have created a email@example.com FASmail alias by following the steps outlined in How To Create Accounts for Student Employees and Teaching Assistants.
Zoom Account Creation
After the FASmail account is created, complete the following steps to request a Zoom account:
- Complete the Request Access to an IT Service form
- Choose Campus: UBC Okanagan
