What if I need a Zoom Webinar or Large Meeting license?

Users can request a loaner Zoom Webinar (100 or 500 Participant) license if they do not believe their department will need to purchase an annual license. These loaner Webinar licenses are first come first serve. Users will receive their license at minimum 48 hours prior to their event dates and will have the license revoked at minimum 24 hours after their event. If a department is needing to run registration, they can open registration for a regular Zoom meeting and convert that meeting to a webinar.

Users will also need to run any reports needed prior to the revoking of the loaner webinar license.

For loaner Zoom Webinar license requests, please go to the OU IT Service Catalog and select the “REQUEST LOANER LICENSE” under the “Request” tab. Fill out and submit the form.

Colleges/Departments that wish to purchase a Zoom Add-On Webinar or Large Meeting license for the year, should also contact their Tier 1 Videoconferencing Support. Here are the differences between Zoom Webinars and Large Meetings. Zoom Webinars can be purchased in 100, 500 and 1000 participant licenses while Zoom Large Meetings can be purchased in only 500 and 1000 participant licenses.

To purchase a Zoom Add-On Webinar or Large Meeting license, please go to the OU IT Service Catalog and select the “PURCHASE ADD-ON LICENSE” under the “Request” tab. Fill out and submit the form. NOTE: Please make sure the “Point of Contact” is the billing contact.
