NEW - From: Information Technology Services (ITS) Campus Solutions -
What’s Changing and When?
Beginning Tuesday April 13, the “only authenticated users can join meetings” setting in the central UT Austin Zoom tenant will be unlocked and meeting hosts will have the ability to choose a security setting that best fits their use case. This change was made possible by a recent Zoom enhancement adding a new setting that forces meeting hosts to choose at least one of the following options to secure their meeting:
This change has been a frequent request by faculty and staff who regularly meet with individuals not associated with UT Austin. Meeting hosts will now have the ability to remove the “require authentication to join” setting, but then must choose to use the waiting room and/or passcode option before creating the meeting.
No action is required. All meetings will continue to be secured by the authentication requirement unless disabled. Settings can be changed on a meeting-by-meeting basis or within the Zoom portal (https://utexas.zoom.us).

UT Austin Continues COVID-19 Protocols - UT Austin will continue following all current COVID-19 safety protocols outlined in Protecting Texas Together. The decision – including required masks in buildings, classrooms, and labs – is in accordance with the most recent guidance from the Texas Education Agency.
All UT and UTL safety protocols remain in place and we expect this situation to continue largely as is through the summer sessions.
UTL planning for returning to work on campus will continue to be deliberate, flexible and focused on the health and safety of library staff and users.
