Zoom Account Requirements for using Zoom Rooms

Important note about licensing

In order to schedule a Zoom Room, your zoom account must be associated with the Administrative IT central Zoom account. If you already have a pro license issued by Admin IT, no action is necessary. If you have a free (basic) Zoom account, it must be associated with the Admin IT central Zoom Account. When a host with a free (basic) account hosts a meeting in the Zoom Room and when the Zoom Room joins the meeting, the license level of that meeting will elevate from Free to Pro, but the free account must be a member of the Admin IT central Zoom Account.

Contact Admin IT at adminithelp@ucdavis.edu if you require a Zoom Pro or Free (Basic) Account associated with the Admin IT central Zoom account.

Free (Basic) versus Pro
  • Basic: A basic user is a user without a paid license. A basic user can host meetings with up to 100 participants. If 3 or more participants join, the meeting will time out after 40 minutes.
  • Pro: A pro user is a paid account user who can host unlimited meetings on the public cloud. By default, they can host meetings with up to 100 participants and large meeting licenses are available for additional capacity. Pro users have these additional features available:
    • Customize Personal Meeting ID
    • Record to the Zoom cloud
