Your phone number will be listed in your assignments letter (part of your Arrival Packet), which is mailed in early August. Your Arrival Packet will contain information from our telecommunications department regarding phone service.
There is one phone per bedroom on campus, and your phone will be working upon your arrival. If you have not contracted for a personal security code (PSC), you will be able to receive off-campus calls but not make them. You can, however, make any on-campus calls you need to make.
If you have contracted for a PSC, then you will be assigned an eight-digit number that you may use to make local off-campus calls. Students will need to make arrangements to make long distance calls through calling cards. It is important for you to remember not to share your PSC. Once you have been assigned this number, you may make calls from virtually any phone on campus.
