Join Zoom Meeting That Requires Authentication

Some campus Zoom meetings may require that you are authenticated (signed in) to the Zoom client with your UArizona Zoom account to join the meeting. It is always best practice to get in the habit of signing in to your Zoom desktop client with your UArizona Zoom account so that any meeting you are joining has you joined with your UArizona credentials. For instructions on properly signing in to the client, visit the Sign in to Zoom Client help page.

If you are not signed in to the Zoom client and you attempt to join a meeting that requires UArizona authentication, follow the steps below.

Step 1

When selecting and joining a meeting link that requires authentication, you will be prompted with a message that says, "Sign in to join this meeting. Sign in using an email address that is authorized to join this meeting". When you get this prompt, select the Sign in to Join button.

Step 2

The next prompt that will appear is the Zoom client login screen. Select the SSO button.


Do not enter your UArizona email address in the empty email or password fields as it will not authenticate correctly and will not let you enter the meeting. The Apple, Google, and Facebook sign in options will also not work. You must select the SSO option to login via NetID to properly authenticate.
