The normal capacity for a Zoom meeting is 300 participants. For large events, you can use either a Large Meeting option (for either 500 or 1000 participants) or use a Webinar. Webinars provide additional functionality for large events. You can see a comparison between Zoom Meeting and Webinar functionality here.
Student Groups, SASgov, and LPSgov now have access to Zoom. Students can contact Mary Spada (email@example.com) in the Vice Provost for University Life office to request access for their group and review options for Webinar and Large Meeting add-ons. Visit https://osa.vpul.upenn.edu/zoom/ for more information.
SAS Grad Students should contact their Home Department Business Office.
SAS Computing has a small number of Large Meeting and Webinar licenses that we can make available for a fee to groups that occasionally (less than 5 per year) host large events.
