Student Phone Instructions

Student Phone Instructions

Students must supply their own standard touch-tone phone and cord, which are connected to the jack provided in their dorm room. (Alcatel phones are provided in the Campbell, Conley, and Salice Hall residences.) For information on using these phones, please use the Alcatel-Lucent 8 and 9 Series Training Guide.

A calling card must be used to make outgoing toll calls on the landline. To use a calling card, dial the toll free number on the back of the card and follow the prompts.

The landline in student dorm rooms is equipped with voicemail. It is recommended that students check their voicemail daily in order to receive timely information from the University.  See the Voicemail page for instructions.

•        Incoming calls and toll free calling
