BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Check your browser.
The virtual meeting experience is best using Google Chrome. Don’t have Chrome? Download it here: https://www.google.com/chrome/. Already using Chrome? Make sure you have the latest version.
Registered attendees may log in here to access the Virtual Housing Opportunity platform. Log in using your ULI login and password. If you forget your ULI credentials, you can update your password via the self-serve option on the ULI website (go to uli.org, select “Sign In” and then the “Forgot Password” link) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Turn on your camera and microphone.
When prompted during any of your logins to the Virtual Housing Opportunity platform, allow access to your computer’s camera and microphone for an optimal Virtual Housing Opportunity experience. The conference platform does not require any additional downloads, but you will need to give Chrome access to your camera and microphone to join the roundtables. Contact your IT team if your company policies block this type of activity.
Do a test run.
Once logged in, verify that you can view on-demand content. Check out one of the virtual tours or visit the ULI Members Lounge to discover downloadable, interactive guides highlighting key benefits available to ULI members. Explore the Roundtable section or set one up yourself to verify that your audio and video work.
Once logged in to the Virtual Housing Opportunity platform, you will see a “?” at the bottom of every page. Clicking it will take you to an FAQ section where you will find answers to a variety of questions, as well as contact information for ULI Customer Service should you need further assistance.

Select your top 5 interests to generate sessions and other content relevant to you.
Record a video.
Record a short, 30-second video using the button in your profile. This is a great way to introduce your virtual self. It’s also added to the wall in the Networking Hub so attendees with similar interests can quickly get to know you and connect!
Connect with other attendees.
View a list of attendees in the Networking Hub. Click the “Connect” button on an attendee’s profile to reach out to them. Once connected, you can chat privately within your profile or set up a Roundtable and meet face-to-face.
Set up a Boardroom to test your audio and video.
Make sure your audio and video are working before the week of the meeting by setting up a Boardroom. If you are unable to change your browser settings to allow camera and microphone access for the meeting platform, consult with your company’s IT department.
