ZOOM @ UT Austin


Zoom is a centrally supported video conferencing solution available to university faculty, staff and students that enables you to meet, teach, and learn from anywhere. It is integrated with Canvas, and you can host and join meetings from your mobile device, desktop client or the web.

If you are having trouble joining a Zoom class or meeting, please make sure you are signed in to Zoom with your UT EID




Zoom Minimum Client Version

On Friday, August 19, 2022, UT Austin’s central Zoom tenant (utexas.zoom.us) will require a minimum client version in order to use the service.

The following are enforced minimum client versions per OS platform:

MacOS – Zoom client version 5.11.6
Windows - Zoom client version 5.11.4
Linux - Zoom client version 5.11.3
Android - Zoom client version 5.11.3
iOS - Zoom client version 5.11.3
Please update your Zoom client at the earliest opportunity.


Zoom Apps Quick Launch 

The Zoom Apps Quick launch feature has now been enabled for all UT Zoom users. This allows you to enable and use UT approved Zoom apps directly through your Zoom client including the Timer application, which allows you to add a timer to your Zoom meeting or webinar without needing an external clock application.

You may also use the Apps button to browse new apps, but as a reminder, new apps and integrations must follow ITS guidelines to be enabled. 


Zoom Cloud Recording Bulk Download Service

In response to the 365 day Zoom Cloud Storage retention schedule, ITS is temporarily offering bulk downloading of recordings for faculty and staff with large volumes of videos yet to be removed from the Zoom cloud. 
If you are unable to download your own cloud storage recordings on your local device, please submit a request to Zoom@utexas.edu, and we can help transfer files to your preferred online storage.
