Joining a Zoom Meeting as an Attendee or Student

To join a Zoom meeting, you will need the meeting information from the host. Before you join, make sure your device is compatible and you have the Zoom client installed. If you don't have the Zoom client, you'll be prompted to install it when you join.

Finding a Link to Join a Meeting

Depending on how the host scheduled a meeting, you may find a meeting invitation in a few places:

Email or Manual Distribution

If your host invited you to your meeting via email, you should receive the meeting link, Meeting ID/Passcode, and dial-in information. Your host may also include joining information though other means such as posting on a website, WebCampus, flyer, etc.

Google Calendar

If the host scheduled in Google Calendar and opted to send email invitations to invited guests, you will receive a Google Calendar invitation with a link to join the Zoom meeting.
