Hosting webinars and large meetings

There are several ways to host webinars and large meetings using platforms provided by the University of Calgary.


Our Zoom campus license allows an unlimited number of meetings with up to 300 participants, including guests from outside the university.

Meetings: Anyone with a UCalgary IT account can create and host a meeting with up to 300 participants through their Zoom account.

Large Meetings: One account can be enabled to host a meeting with up to 1,000 participants, with the normal meeting functionality.

Webinar: One account can host a webinar, with features designed for public-facing presentations with limited interaction from participants.

By default, when you sign up for a UCalgary licensed Zoom account, it will allow you to host a meeting with up to 300 participants. If you wish to accommodate more attendees, please submit a request for large meeting or webinar add-on to ComMedia (IT) using this form.
