Frequently Asked Questions

How do I create/activate my educational license?

A licensed uOttawa Zoom account differs from a regular Zoom account. To benefit from all of the uOttawa organization Zoom features, you will need to use a uOttawa Zoom account. To create your account:

  • Navigate to https://uottawa-ca.zoom.us
  • Sign in using your uoAccess single sign-on (SSO) credentials. These are the same credentials that you use to access VirtuO and Brightspace if you are a professor or a Teaching assistant, and uoZone and Brightspace if you are a student. Your account should then be automatically created.

Important note for TA’s: If you need to use Zoom for your teaching assistant duties, use your employee credentials to create your account.
