Local and Long Distance Calling

Local and Long Distance Calling for Faculty, Staff, Departments

Telecommunications offers local and long distance service at competitive rates. There is no charge for local area calls. Long distance calls are billed to telephone subscribers based on usage.

Domestic and International Long Distance Calling

Domestic long distance calls placed from university telephones are billed to departments and individual telephone subscribers at a rate of $0.03 per minute. Because international calling rates vary by country and change periodically, we recommend you contact us to determine the current rates for the country you are calling.
