Zoom - You do not need a license to join a Zoom meeting, however UCSD does provide Zoom accounts to students free of charge. You will need to set up an account if you would like to create or set up your own meetings (this may be of interest to students for collaboration purposes). You may also need to set up an account for specific course purposes. Setting up an account is quick and easy.
