Zoom Replaces WebEx

August, 2018

UNCW has adopted a new collaborative meeting tool for Web conferencing, online meetings and synchronous Distance Education classes called Zoom. Zoom replaces UNCW’s instance of WebEx.

Zoom has all the features of WebEx but has the added benefit of a simplified and more intuitive interface which makes it easier to use. In addition, Zoom will have single sign-on access, so all students, faculty and staff can launch the platform using their UNCW domain name and password.

To create your personal Zoom account, login here:, click Sign in and follow the steps to login to Office 365 using your UNCW domain name and password.

For an overview of Zoom, please visit the Zoom Help Center. A Zoom training for UNCW participants is being planned, and that date will be announced as soon as it is confirmed. For additional information and technical support related to this migration please contact Dan Noonan at

If you have any questions, please contact the Technology Assistance Center at 910.962.4357.
