Hi,

For Question1 Office 365 Admin needs to perform the tasks of restricting the teams creation.

For Question2 you can set the meeting lobby policy or the meeting options which will help you to make the Student wait in lobby.

If the students are in your same tenant, then you cannot keep them in a lobby, that only works for external participants. So option 1 admin rights are needed and you can specific a group with permissions to create groups (teams) in your tenant. :

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/admin/create-groups/manage-creation-of-groups?view=o3...

This will restrict planner plan creation and SharePoint site creation etc. as well from those not in the group.

Hi @Chris Webb 

 

Agree with you if they are part of the same tenant there is no way we can restrict them in the lobby.

@Chaminda2235 Hello Chaminda, for your information they are working on it: 

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38309602--no-one-choice-in-the...

 

"Thanks again for your feedback on this. The team has begun working on an option requiring everyone other than the meeting organizer to go thru the lobby. We will continue to evaluate our best option to release with increased priority."

 

Go there and vote and you'll be updated when the status changes.
