Get Started: 

UC Davis has begun to consolidate most Zoom accounts on campus into one main “instance” (collection of accounts) at Previously, these accounts had existed in over 100 separate instances administered by different units. The consolidation process began on June 17, 2020 and will continue through fall 2020. This effort helps resolve many technical, security, and support issues that have existed in the unconsolidated environment.
