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. There are three options to consider:

  • The free, basic version is available to UW Faculty, Staff, and Students with a valid UW NedID but does have limitations.
  • Media Services can loan out Pro licenses if you plan to use Zoom only a few times, but need full functionality.
    Please contact us at least two weeks prior to the conference date to arrange for assistance.
  • Purchase Zoom Pro license. If you plan to perform many video conferences, with full functionality, you should ask your department to purchase a Zoom Pro license for you. 
    Please have your department send an email to to initiate the process.

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.
