Voice mail service is available at a reasonable fee from the Housing Office (Room 309 of the University Center).

When Creating Personal Greetings

When Leaving Voice Messages

Step 1. After you hear the person you're calling personal greeting, record your message after the beep. If you would like to bypass greeting and record right away, press 1

Step 3. For help at any time you can press *4

Step 4. While recording (and before hanging up), you can press:

Faculty/Staff Cell Phones

Many jobs or responsibilities across campus require someone to contact us when we're not at our desk, sometimes even after University business hours, and while the University does NOT provide cell phones to employees with this need and/or job requirement, there is a way that such an employee can be compensated by the University for using their own personal cell phones.  

Mobile/Smart Devices Allowance Request Procedures

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING CELL PHONES: Due to the sheer number of different types of cell phones on the market, and given that these devices are all your personal property, Technology Support can not fully support your devices or even their respective connection to services we provide.  They will make efforts to assist you in getting your device to work, but ultimately are not responsible for ensuring that it does or that it meets the expectations of the user.


Equipment Pricing

Everything has it's price, and with Phone Services it is no different.  Everything from new telephone cords, to new multiline phones and to moving telephones and extensions from one building to another can be found priced out here.



As much as we would love for things to work properly all the time, sometimes they just don't.  If you should come in one day to find that your telephone, voicemail, long distance or any other Phone Service is not working how you would expect it to, please follow these trouble reporting procedures to get help as soon as possible!
