Sign into UW Zoom with a Shared NetID

Follow these steps if you are trying to sign into UW Zoom using a Shared UW NetID. This procedure shows you how to sign into a HIPAA-compliant UW Zoom account and a standard UW Zoom account.

Note: Using Shared UW NetIDs is possible, but not recommended with Zoom. A host account can host only one meeting at a time. When a second user tries to sign in and host a meeting on the same Zoom host account, the first user is automatically logged out. Using a UW NetID that is shared by several people may cause meeting time conflicts, resulting in potential meeting interruptions.

  1. Sign out of all UW and Zoom websites.
  2. Quit the browser.
  3. Open a new browser session, making sure that you are not signed into any sites. 
  4. Go to http://washington.zoom.us. If you are trying to sign into a HIPAA-compliant UW Zoom account, click HIPAA Login.
