The Northwest Conference (NWC) Presidents’ Council announced on Aug. 17 that all conference competition and championships will be suspended until Jan. 1, 2021. Fall and winter sports are suspended. The NWC is continuing to work to develop a schedule for competition for these sports in the spring semester. 

Currently, athletics facilities are open to members of the campus community (students, faculty, and staff) only. Reservations are required one day in advance for 50-minute time slots (with 10-minute transition periods between reservations). Everyone using the facilities will receive a temperature screening to ensure a reading of less than 100.4 F. Face coverings and social distancing requirements must be followed.

Zoom Pro Licenses

Faculty and staff members may now access professional Zoom licenses as part of the University of Puget Sound’s enterprise license. Professional licenses support up to 300 active participants and include breakout sessions, chat, and more.

Accessing your pro license:

  • Visit and log in with your university credentials OR download the Zoom app on your computer, smartphone, or tablet and use your university credentials to log in.
  • If you have been using a personally owned Zoom license, please transition further use to the university’s Zoom license, as this affords us the security and legal protections of the enterprise license.
  • If you previously set up a personally owned Zoom account using your email address, you will need to remove that address from your personal account prior to authenticating with your Puget Sound credentials.
  • If you were already using a university-issued Zoom account, you will continue to have access to your account.

Zoom also will be integrated with Canvas, should you wish to take advantage of the integration for classes. Zoom/Canvas integration is expected to be completed in the coming weeks.

Google Hangouts/Meet will remain available and may be used alongside Zoom. You may choose whichever platform best fits your individual needs. Please be sure to use your university credentials for Google Hangouts and Meet, as well.

If you have any questions, please contact Technology Services at or 253.879.8585.
