Effective Sunday, September 20 at 8 p.m., all Zoom sessions have a required waiting room. Waiting Rooms will automatically be enabled for meetings you have already scheduled. Participants who log into a UMD-hosted Zoom session using a UMD Zoom account (which requires logging in with a Directory ID and password) will bypass the waiting room. Individuals who do not use a UMD account will be placed in the waiting room and will only have access to the session after being admitted by the host.

Students are expected to sign in with their UMD account for all classes. Those signing in with a UMD Zoom account for the first time should follow these instructions: Sign In to Zoom.

Additional information is available about security settings for Zoom meetings. If you need assistance with Zoom or other IT services, please contact the IT Service Desk.
