Get Your UVA Zoom Backgrounds Here


Find the latest information on the University’s response to the coronavirus here.


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.
