Zoom client updates are being released on a more consistent basis.If you have a College owned machine on campus, Zoom client updates are being automatically pushed.

If you have a College owned laptop, client updates can be obtained by connecting to the campus network via OpenVPN.  The client generally checks for updates every 60 minutes, and you will then be updated automatically.  The Zoom update is small and (depending on network speed) should only take a few minutes.

If you are on your home computer, updates can be installed manually. To perform manual updates on either a College owned or personal computer, please see the Zoom Client website.

Please note that Due to security changes from Zoom, after May 30, older Zoom clients will need to be updated before they can join a meeting.
