Installing Zoom

Zoom meetings can be joined with a desktop client, a mobile app, or using a web browser.

To install Zoom on a university computer, access the Zoom install from either the Software Center (Windows) or Managed Software Center (Mac.) Please note: to install software from the Software Centers while off-campus, you will need to be connected to the university's VPN.

To install Zoom on a personal computer, simply download and install Zoom from the Zoom portal at https://wpunj.zoom.us/download.

To install Zoom on an iOS or Android phone or tablet, search your respective App store for Zoom. Once installed, sign in using the 'SSO' option with wpunj.zoom.us as the domain.

To join a Zoom meeting using a web browser, look for the 'If you cannot download or run the application, join from your browser.' link on the Zoom meeting landing page.

Logging Into Zoom with your WP account

Logging Into Zoom Meeting Software

When prompted to login to the Zoom Meeting software:

  • Choose ‘Sign in with SSO’ from the right
  • Enter wpunj.zoom.us as the Domain and click Continue
  • Login to the WPconnect login with your WPUNJ account

Logging Into Zoom on the Web

From the Zoom web site you can create and manage meetings.

  • To log in to the Zoom website, Sign in at www.wpunj.edu/zoom
  • Log in using your WPUNJ account

Logging in with an existing Zoom account tied to your WPUNJ email

If you already have a Zoom login tied to your WPUNJ email, you can convert that account to be licensed under the main William Paterson Zoom account. To access your university-licensed Zoom account:

  • Follow the instructions for logging in above, making sure to use the SSO login option which will have you login through WPconnect.
  • The first time that you login using the SSO login option, you will receive a prompt that your Zoom account will be transitioned to the 'William Paterson University' account license.
  • At that time, your existing Zoom account will be enabled with the 'Pro' features/license of the university account.

If you do not want your existing Zoom account (tied to your WPUNJ email) to be migrated to the university license, do not login using the SSO option. If you have questions on this process, please contact the Helpdesk at www.wpunj.edu/help or (973) 720-4357.

Scheduling Meetings on Zoom

You can schedule zoom meetings in multiple ways. You can utilize the Zoom web portal, Outlook desktop or web applications, or the Zoom application itself.

Using the Zoom Web Portal or Zoom app

To schedule meetings on the Zoom web portal or in the Zoom app, Zoom provides a quick video introduction and step by step instructions on how to schedule zoom meetings.

Using the Outlook desktop application

To schedule meetings using the Outlook Application, on university computers, the Zoom plug-in for Outlook is included as part of the Zoom installations available through the Software Center (Windows) or Managed Software Center. On personal computers using Outlook, you can install the Outlook plug-in from the Zoom Download Center. (On personal computers we suggest using the Outlook web application to schedule meetings)

More information on using the Outlook plugin for the desktop application can be found on the Zoom Help Center.

Using Outlook 365

For Outlook on the web, the Zoom add-in has been pre-installed for all employee accounts. Please see the Zoom Help Center video and step by step instructions on scheduling Zoom meetings thru Outlook 365.

As of 1/31/21, Zoom now has Built in Captioning and it is available on all university zoom accounts. This needs to be turned on by the host of the meeting following these steps.

  1. Login to the Zoom Web Portal at www.wpunj.edu/zoom.
  2. Click on the Settings option on the left menu and then scroll down to Meeting (Advanced.)
