How do I get acces to Zoom?

Updated Oct 20, 2021

This article explains how to access Zoom.


All current students,  lecturers, and staff have been added to the educational Zoom license of Leiden University. This license guarantees better security and privacy than a  free non-educational license.

In addition, a free license can only host sessions with up to 100  participants, while the standard education license allows up to  300  participants and there are opportunities to increase this to  1000  participants if needed.  

Get access:

  • Click Sign in.
  • Log in with your ULCN credentials.
