Students in college housing are provided with basic telephone service that includes on-campus and local calling free of charge. Students who bring their own phones to campus will need to plug a phone into the telephone jack, then contact the Telephone Office to set up service. The only restriction on personal phones is that 2.4 GHz cordless telephones are not permitted, as they interfere with wireless data networks.

Students may also borrow a handset from the Office of Residential Education (Griswold Commons, Stevenson Hall) at no charge for the academic year.

Voicemail is available free of charge to all students. Students desiring this service should contact the Telephone Office.

Students are not allowed to receive collect phone calls. If a student is found to have accepted collected charges, they may be subject to disciplinary action and will be required to pay accrued charges.
