Zoom for Meetings & Events

Using Zoom at Law School Events

GW Law School supports the utilization of Zoom for all virtual or hybrid events and meetings. Our audiovisual (AV) infrastructure seamlessly integrates with Zoom, enabling us to transmit audio and video from our system to remote participants. Nearly all Law School classrooms and event spaces are equipped to accommodate Zoom, with a few exceptions.

If your event necessitates the use of Zoom, we recommend confirming the Zoom capability of your reserved room by consulting our Room Technology List
