  3. There are additional international dial-in phone numbers available to staff, faculty, departmental, and sponsored accounts upon request. 
    • These numbers incur a cost to the University of Minnesota when participants use them based on the number of participants using the phone number and the duration of the meeting or webinar. 
      • For this reason, these requests must be approved by the Office of Information technology (OIT).  If you have a business use case for adding one of these numbers to your UMN Zoom account for meetings or webinars you host, please complete the following Google form: z.umn.edu/zoominternational
    • Some of these phone numbers are denoted on the zoom.us/zoomconference website as orange partially obscured phone numbers. 
      • These are fee-based tolls which will charge the participant who calls the phone number as well as the University of Minnesota.

    • Many additional countries have Toll-free numbers that can be enabled on your UMN Zoom account upon request and approval of OIT as noted above. 
      • This list is not available publicly and is subject to change.  Please use the above Google form (z.umn.edu/zoominternational) for inquiries and we will let you know if we have a Zoom toll-free phone number available for the desired country or countries.
