Zooming to a meeting? Use one of these backgrounds to show your UCCS pride

We’re bringing campus to you!

While UCCS uses Microsoft Teams as the preferred platform for video conferencing, many campus users and alumni may be joining Zoom conferences during this time. We’ve created a variety of backgrounds for you to use in your Zoom meetings.

Teams is offering more options for different backgrounds, with the goal of allowing users to use a custom background by May.
