Conference Calling

There are currently two options for UCSC campus groups wishing to initiate a Teleconference, web conference or video conference. Click each link for instructions and more information. Please note while the Zoom Service is being defined at UCSC ReadyTalk will continue to be available. 

  • UCSC Conference Calling - The UCSC telephone system allows teleconferencing with up to 8 parties. Since only two of the parties can be located off-campus, this type of teleconference call is best suited for smaller, more informal conference calls, especially those where all parties are located on campus.
  • Ready Talk Teleconference Calling plus Web and Video Conferencing - ReadyTalk offers a wide variety of conferencing services including web and video. There can be up to 96 participants per call. Teleconference calls may be recorded and stored for a small additional charge and are available for access on the WEB until host requests to delete.

If you have questions about teleconference services or would like to learn about additional options, please contact ITS at
