How do I join a scheduled online meeting?

You can join or start a meeting via your UVACollab site.

For the best experience hosting or joining online meetings, install the Zoom client (opens new window) on your PC or Mac or add the Zoom app to your mobile device. 

Alternatively, a Zoom web client (opens new window) is available for those who are unable to install the full client.

Go to Online Meetings.

Select the Online Meetings tool from the Tool Menu of your site.

Verify timezone and select the Join/Start button.

On the Upcoming Meetings tab:

  1. Verify that your current time zone is correct. Use the Pencil icon to the right of the displayed time zone to edit and select the correct time zone, as needed.
  2. The button you select to join the meeting depends on whether you are attending or hosting the meeting. If you are an attendee, select the Join button. If you are a meeting host, select the Start button.

Use the Zoom client or browser app to launch meeting.

When you join a meeting, you will see a notice that your meeting is launching. If you have the Zoom client installed (opens new window; recommended), it will launch automatically.

Alternatively, you may select the link to start from your browser. The browser version of the Zoom client has limitations, e.g., no breakout room option.
