Video Conferencing

Main page content

Video conferencing is available on the UW Tacoma campus for internal and external clients. 
UW Tacoma primarily uses UW ZOOM Video conferencing.  Currently, there are two options to choose from, depending upon your needs:

  • Each UW member has access to a free, UW Zoom Standard license, which allows for meetings for up to 300 participants and without time limits. Please visit the UW Zoom Video Conferencing site for more information.
  • If you need stronger administrative assistance, Media Services can schedule your Zoom meeting for you. 
    Please contact us at least two weeks prior to the conference date to arrange for assistance.

Requests for services to offer distance education courses and to conduct tri-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 to discuss getting set up to use this service.

View video tutorials that cover basic tips for all UW users, student perspective, instructional support, security tips, and trending topics. 

Learn more about eligibility, features, and FERPA/HIPPA compliance.


For basic meetings and classroom support, charges do not apply to UW Tacoma faculty and staff. However, there may still be a charge to cover additional labor cost.

For external clients, rates are $150.00 per hour (includes administration duties and testing).

For online support of large events, webinars, and conferences, please visit Event Support - Virtual and In-Person.


 Video conferences canceled less than 48 hours prior to the event, will be charged a $100 administrative fee.
