Setting the Time Zone in Zoom

If you have ever experienced Canvas showing the wrong time for Zoom class sessions, you will need to verify that your Zoom account reflects the correct time zone. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Go to illinois.zoom.us and log in with your NetID and password.

  2. Click Profile on the left side of the screen.

  3. On your profile page, you'll find different sections of information. The first section is labeled "Personal." The third option under "Personal" is Time Zone. Click Edit in the Time Zone row.

  4. A drop down will appear where it lists your time zone. Select the correct time zone and click Save.
