Faculty/Staff Remote (Zoom) Request

All reservation requests for the use of Hunter’s ZOOM technology must be submitted online. If your department already has a ZOOM account through Hunter, we are still requesting for all ZOOM meetings to be submitted to the online request system. This will allow ICIT to work with your department to determine if any additional technical support is required. The online form that you submit with all of the requested information assists us in ensuring that your virtual meeting is a success. 

The online form will ask if you are hosting a meeting or a webinar. These two options are distinctly different but the options will properly support your objectives based on your technology needs.

  • A ZOOM Meeting is ideal for hosting more interactive sessions where you’ll want to have lots of audience participation or break your session into smaller groups. Your participants’ view will show all participants on the call which is known as a gallery view. Up to 300 participants can be on a ZOOM meeting. 

    If you anticipate having a ZOOM meeting with more than 300 participants, we have the ability to accommodate up to 1,000 people.  

  • A ZOOM Webinar is like being in a lecture hall or auditorium but virtually! Webinars are ideal for large audiences or events that are open to the public. Typically, webinar attendees do not interact with one another. Though ZOOM provides options for you to get more social with your attendees, your average webinar has one or a few people speaking to an audience. Your participant’s view will be of the speaker(s) only. Up to 1,000 participants can be on a ZOOM webinar.

Please make sure that your meeting/program has been approved by your Dean and/or Department Head prior to submitting your remote meeting request. Additional approval is required by Dean Rose, if your requests requires co-sponsoring with an outside organization.



When you submit your request through the online system, you will receive a six digit event ID number. Please make sure to keep this event ID number for your reference. A submission of your request does not automatically mean the request has been approved. Please anticipate receiving a response to your remote meeting requests within 2 - 4 business days.

When the request is approved, a pre-meeting will be scheduled with ICIT to review your technology meeting needs with you along with any other individuals that you’re assigning to assist you with your remote meeting needs. If you do not have a Hunter ZOOM account, you will receive instructions on setting up for an account with your Hunter’s email account. 


If you have any questions after you submitted your request, please email
