Zoom Meeting Limited to 40 Minutes

Environment

University of Michigan Zoom

Issue

Why does my Zoom Meeting only last 40 minutes?

Resolution

The 40 minute limit is connected to the Free version of Zoom. To extend the limit, you need to transfer your existing Zoom Account over to a University of Michigan Zoom Account.

If you have a U-M Zoom account, are logged in properly, and still experience a 40 minute time out for a meeting you are hosting, keep in mind that active meetings will time out after 40 minutes if there is 1 host and 1 or more participants joined, but there is only one person remains in the meeting. The meeting will end 40 minutes later if no one else joins.
