02/15/19 - Zoom is Here! Conferencing for Everyone!

Tags Zoom


Starting February 15th, Dominican University will switch to using Zoom, one of the fastest growing and most reliable web conferencing services available!

Get Your Free Zoom Pro Account


  • Navigate to https://dom.zoom.us.
  • Sign in using your existing Dominican email address and password.
  • Your Zoom Pro account will be immediately created and ready to use!


Host Zoom Meetings from Your Computer

  • Download and install the Zoom Meeting Client software from https://dom.zoom.us/download. The system will also prompt you to download if you join a meeting without the software.
  • Use the Schedule feature in Zoom to create and send invitations that include all the information your guests need to join your meeting (including phone numbers and web links).
  • For additional convenience, you can schedule meetings directly from your Outlook Calendar by installing the Zoom Scheduler Add-In for O365. The scheduler will then be available both on the web as well as in your Outlook Desktop. Click here for instructions.
  • The Support Center can order USB webcams or headsets if needed. Costs will be charged back to your department; please provide an account number and manager approval with your order.

Join Zoom Meetings from Lifesize Conference Systems

***After February 15, current dialing instructions for all meetings using Lifesize Cloud will no longer work. Be sure to update any previously scheduled meetings to use Zoom, instead** 

  • Lifesize conference systems can dial in to Zoom meetings for video, audio, and content sharing.
  • Each Zoom meeting invitation contains the server address and meeting number to be dialed.
  • Zoom meeting information is not tied to any physical conference room or device. There’s no need to send last-minute updates to remote participants if your meeting room changes!
  • The steps for making phone calls (directly dialing telephone numbers) remain the same.
