What are Zoom's limits?

Millersville University's licensed Zoom capacities

Zoom meetings

  • up to 300 participants per meeting
  • up to 49 people on screen simultaneously in gallery view (Meeting with more than 49 people? You can page left or right to see everyone.)
Concurrent meetings

You can:

  • host at most two Zoom meetings at a time
  • participate in two or more simultaneous Zoom meetings

For details, please see: Hosting or joining concurrent Zoom meetings

As a community we can host virtually unlimited simultaneous Zoom meetings, up to two per person (host).

Large Zoom meetings

  • up to 1,000 participants per meeting
  • 1 large meeting at a time, university-wide

Millersville has one Large Meeting 1000 license. Contact the IT Help Desk to request more information about, and to schedule, large Zoom meetings.

Zoom webinars

  • up to 1,000 view-only attendees per webinar
  • 2 webinars at a time, university-wide

Millersville has two Zoom webinar licenses:

  • one webinar license allows up to 500 attendees
  • the other webinar license allows up to 1,000 attendees

We cannot combine the two licenses to support a single webinar with more than 1,000 attendees.

Contact the IT Help Desk to request more information about, and to schedule, Zoom webinars.

Zoom cloud recordings

  • approximately 500 MB cloud storage per person

Millersville's Zoom cloud is sized to provide 500 MB each to every Millersville student, faculty, and staff member. Some people will make a lot of cloud recordings and others will make few or none, so there aren't any hard quotas, and you won't be cut off at 500 MB.

Need more?

Zoom sell webinar licenses for greater numbers of attendees, all the way up to 10,000 viewers. Contact the IT Help Desk if you'd like to work with IT to explore options.

Additionally, Millersville University has a license for a Zoom competitor, Cisco Webex, that allows webinars with up to 1.000 view-only attendees.

For more cloud storage, move your Zoom recordings from the Zoom cloud to MU Video.
