How do I get acces to Zoom?

Updated on

This article explains how to get acces to Zoom.  All students,  lecturers, and staff have been added to the educational Zoom license of Leiden University. 

Why make use of the license?

The license guarantees better security and privacy than a  free non-educational license. In addition, a free license can only host sessions with up to 100  participants, whereas the standard education license allows up to  300  participants. If you wish to increase the number of participants up to a 1000, you can request a webinar or large live room here. 

Get Access

Go to: to access the license. You will see the following screen.

  • Click Sign in.
  • Log in with your ULCN credentials.

It is also possible to click the Zoom button in Brightspace to activate your Zoom account from there.
