Zoom Rooms

AIRC 103 (GATHERING PLACE), BN 100, BG 303, M 300

Zoom Rooms have computers already connected to the room mic and cameras running Zoom software that is controlled by a touch panel. If you need to use software other than Zoom in a Zoom Room, please contact the Help Desk in advance to schedule assistance. Zoom documentation on using Zoom Rooms is available at https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/sections/200787849-Attendee-Features.

  • Use the iPad with the Zoom controller software to control the meeting. Press the Join button on the left sidebar and enter the meeting ID of the meeting to join.
  • If the meeting is not already scheduled, you can start an instant meeting. Press Meet Now in the left sidebar. Use the search bar to find a user to invite. Press Meet Now to start the meeting.
  • If you have content on your laptop you would like to share, visit https://share.zoom.us and enter the meeting ID when prompted, or select Share Screen from the Zoom client. Do not join the Zoom meeting from your laptop, or you will cause feedback in the room.
Conference Rooms

M 170, M320, HMU Bridgeview

M 170 and M 320 are equipped with video conferencing cameras and microphones, connected to a PC in the room. You must use the room PC to join your videoconference, but Zoom, Teams or any other video conferencing software may be used.

HMU Bridgeview is equipped with a video conferencing soundbar with a webcam. Connect the USB cable from the soundbar to your laptop, and turn on the TV and set the source to HDMI 3 to use the system.

ITV Classrooms

AIRC 127

AIRC 127 is configured for room to room connections to ITV classrooms at other institutions. Zoom meetings can also be connected to an ITV classroom. Please contact Classroom Technology Services at ext. 2759 if you would like to use an ITV connection or Zoom connection in this classroom, since these connections must be scheduled through the Northwest Educational Technology System (NETS).
