Web Conferencing Services

NC State provides an array of audio and video conferencing solutions for all types of meetings. Whether you are hosting a quick conference call with a few participants, a collaborative document review meeting, or a training session, we’ve got you covered. All services require an active unityid@ncsu.edu email address in order to host a meeting, although meeting participants are not required to have an NC State affiliation.
