Video conferencing

Main page content

Video conferencing is available on the UW Tacoma campus for internal and external clients. 
UW Tacoma primarily uses the simple to use, UW ZOOM Video conferencing. 
To request the use of one of Media Services' limited Zoom licenses, please contact us at least two weeks prior to the conference date.

If you plan to perform many video conferences, you should ask your department if they have a Zoom license for use. 
If you or your department wishes to purchase a license, please send an email to tachelp@uw.edu to intitiate the process.

Requests for services to offer distance education courses and to conduct cross-campus business will be given top priority.  
Requests for services from off-campus business or agencies will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you are not affiliated with UW Tacoma, you will need to contact tacmedia@uw.edu to discuss getting set up to use this service.
