University of Virginia students, faculty members and staff might be meeting over Zoom, but they still bring plenty of personality to the table.

The videoconferencing software – vaulted to global prominence as the COVID-19 pandemic forced schools and workplaces everywhere to replace in-person meetings with virtual ones – allows users to add their own photos for custom backgrounds.

Those missing UVA and Grounds can choose from some of our favorite images below, whether that’s a sunset shot of the Rotunda from above, or a reminder of the wild Corner celebrations after last year’s national title.

Take a look and download any image you like; all are sized to fit Zoom specifications. To add the image in Zoom, go to Preferences, choose “Virtual Background” and click the plus-sign to add images from your computer.
