Zoom Licenses


Zoom is an online meeting platform that can allow faculty, students and staff to schedule and attend meetings in a virtual space..


Bowdoin owns a site license which allows all students, faculty and administrative staff access to all "Pro" Zoom features.

Zoom webinar licenses are not included with our standard Zoom licensing. Zoom meetings of up to 300 people can be held with our current license options. If you feel you need to perform a webinar, contact the Service Desk for possible alternative options or a cost estimate to purchase a Zoom webinar license.

Recording Features

When using Zoom you have the opportunity to record the Zoom meeting. We recommend that you record the meeting to your computer and not to the Zoom cloud so that you have access to manipulate the videos at a later time.

Calling Features

When setting up a Zoom meeting, you may have the option to choose computer audio only or dial-in audio. It is highly recommended that you choose Computer Audio Only. Bowdoin has not subscribed to a Zoom dial-in plan. If you choose dial-in and any of the attendees use this feature, you or your department may receive a request for a project code to charge the call costs directly to your department.
