Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing and recording tool. Zoom combines video conferencing, online meetings, and mobile collaboration into one platform.

Lehigh's instance of Zoom can be accessed in this way:


  1. Go to https://lehigh.zoom.us

  2. IMPORTANT: Click the "Sign In" link in the top right of the screen. 

Do not click the "sign up free" option since this is not the Lehigh Enterprise version and will not provide you with important benefits of Lehigh's license. 

 3. Log into Lehigh's SSO page using your regular Lehigh credentials. 

By default, everyone who logs into https://lehigh.zoom.us is provisioned for a 'Pro' account (faculty, staff, and students). Note: Faculty and staff will have the option to save recordings to the cloud as well as the ability to save recordings locally. Students will only have the ability to save recordings locally. If you are a student is engaged in research or a project where you need cloud recordings, please contact initt@lehigh.edu.

(You may also consider using Google Meet if you want to host external participants or you do not wish to record your meeting.)
