Important Changes to Zoom Login – University of Arkansas Newswire

University of Arkansas

The method for logging into Zoom will move to Microsoft Azure, the university’s single sign-on system (SSO), on Sunday, Sept. 20. This change will increase security for university Zoom users.

Starting Sept. 20, UARK users will be required to log in with single sign-on. This system for signing in is already used for popular services such as Office 365, Box and Blackboard Learn. Users should log out of the Zoom application if they were not logged in through the university’s single sign-on. To log back in, click the “Sign In with SSO” button and enter “uark” as the company domain.

This change may impact joining meetings or classes. If users have difficulty logging into Zoom, they may still be logged into the Zoom application using a previous account that is not associated with the U of A. Users will need to sign out and then sign in again using the “Sign in with SSO” option.

To access Zoom through a UARK account with a web browser, visit and click “Sign In.” Follow the prompts and log in with your address and password.

Faculty and staff might be prompted to verify their account with multi-factor authentication. Make sure your device is with you should you need to authenticate. Learn more about multi-factor authentication.
