Setting Up Zoom

Before using Zoom for the first time, users will need to authenticate an account using a DePaul email address.

  1. Go to depaul.zoom.us
  2. Select Sign In.
  3. Enter Campus Connect credentials.
  4. This will create the Zoom account, to be associated with the preferred email address as listed in Campus Connect.

Verifying Preferred Email for D2L Integration

The preferred method to access Zoom is through depaul.zoom.us, however, Zoom can also be integrated into D2L. This is an optional feature that allows for access to Zoom from a D2L course under the Edit Course tab. If choosing to integrate Zoom into D2L, a DePaul email address will need to be used as the preferred email address, so there are additional steps required to verify the preferred email address in Campus Connect:

  1. Open Campus Connect.
  2. Log in with Campus Connect credentials.
  3. Follow the directions for Updating Personal Information.
  4. Make sure that the email address marked as “Preferred” is a DePaul email address. If it is not, change/add that email address and save it as preferred.

Note: Please be aware that it can take 12-24 hours for the change to synchronization with D2L.
