Zoom Video Conferencing assists with audio and video conferencing, mobile collaboration, and simple online meetings via a cloud-based platform. Zoom Meetings and Webinars provide a video conferencing solution with quick and easy virtual, remote participation.
UCSB Information Technology Services (ITS) will automatically issue anyone with a UCSBnetID a Zoom Pro account upon the first login using UCSB single sign-on (SSO). Zoom pro accounts are intended for enrolled students, academic affiliates, faculty, and staff. These accounts can host up to 300 participants. Users may invite participants not associated with UCSB to their Zoom sessions. Users can also request webinar accounts for those meetings with more than 300 participants. If the user is not an enrolled student or does not have an active affiliation, Zoom accounts will be reverted to Basic (group meetings are limited to 40 minutes and can host up to 100 participants).

“Zoombombing” occurs when an uninvited party joins a Zoom session to cause disruption. Often this disruption takes the form of profanity, hate speech, or pornography. Sometimes the disruption includes threats. If you receive threats during a Zoom session, please notify the UC police by calling (805) 893-3446.
If you are the victim of Zoombombing, please report it by emailing the Security Operations Center (SOC) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
