Members of TU Dresden can log in to Zoom with their personal ZIH login and password. You can find your ZIH login in the profile of the Self-Service Portal in the account information section as "Login user name".

Login is done using SSO only, where your primary email address as listed in the "Email" section of the Self-Service-Portal profile is taken for the Zoom account. Login via Apple, facebook, Google or other services is not possible.

Notes on the change of the login method

Note: Login via Apple, facebook, Google is not possible. Login via email address and individually assigned password will be deactivated soon.

For successful login using ZIH login to the existing Zoom account, it is necessary that your email address registered there corresponds to the primary email address as listed in the Self-Service-Portal profile in the "Email" section. If this is not the case, you can change the email address: To do so, navigate to your Zoom profile, where you can "Edit" the "Sign-In Email" in the "Sign In" section by clicking the button of the same name at the end of the line.

Login on the Zoom webseite

The login to the Zoom website is done via the TU Dresden login link. (Alternatively, also on the normal Zoom website by selecting the login option "SSO" and entering the domain "tu-dresden"). After successfully logging in, you will then land on the profile page. There you can view previous and upcoming meetings as well as create new ones via the item of the same name.
