Video Conferencing


The University has negotiated a one-year agreement for instructors and staff to have their own Zoom Education license at no cost to the individual or their department. A Zoom Education license is similar to the Standard Pro license that can be purchased individually; it allows the individual to run their own interactive meetings with up to 300 participants.

How Can I obtain Zoom Education license? 

If you are currently using an IITS-supplied Zoom license that is linked to your U of T email address, please hold on until IITS reaches out to you to transfer your Zoom account to the new U of T Zoom subscription. Failing to do that may result in access problems (Scenario II on ACT website)

If you do not have a paid Zoom license linked to your U of T email, please follow the instructions described under Scenario III or IV (as applicable) on ACT website
