Join a Webex Online Meeting

OHSU Information Technology offers online meeting space and video conferencing through Cisco Webex Meetings, helping connect colleagues across Oregon and around the world.

Getting started

Although you can join a Webex meeting from a browser, for the best experience it’s recommended to download and install the Webex app before your meeting. If using a browser, Chrome or Firefox are the most compatible with Webex.

Audio-only meetings

You can also join a Webex meeting from your phone. Please note that you will not be able to see any shared materials or video from your phone.  The dial-in number and meeting access code will be in your meeting invitation. 

What do you need for audio and video?

  • A computer (Mac/PC) or mobile device with an active internet connection
  • A computer headset is strongly recommended
  • A web camera if you plan to join a meeting by video
