About the Michigan Tech Voice Mail System
The Michigan Tech Voice Mail System will enhance the way you communicate by making it easy to play, send, and answer voice messages from any touchtone telephone in the world. All of your voice messages reside in your personal voice mailbox, which is protected by a pass code. Voicemail messages are deleted from the voice mail system after 15 days.
How you call into your mailbox will depend on whether you're calling from on campus or from off campus. It will also depend on how your voice mail service has been established. That is, it will depend on whether or not your phone line includes a single voice mailbox or multiple voice mailboxes.
Michigan Tech's Voicemail to Email service is an optional voice mail service feature provided through the University's NuPoint Unified Messaging (NP-UM) system. This service allows you to receive your messages through the Michigan Tech email system and lets you listen to and manage your voicemail messages using your desktop computer, laptop, or any other electronic device capable of receiving email and playing waveform audio (.wav) files.
Once a voicemail message has been sent via email, it is deleted from the voice mail system after 24 hours.
Michigan Tech's Fax to Voicemail/Email service is an optional feature provided through the University's NuPoint Unified Messaging (NP-UM) system. This feature works in conjunction with the University's Voicemail to Email Service and allows you to receive fax documents through your Michigan Tech email account rather than through a designated fax machine.
The Call Director service is an optional feature provided by the University's NuPoint Unified Messaging (NP-UM) system. This feature allows additional call flow features, such as playing additional messages, performing call transfers, etc. to be used when handling calls that cannot be answered in-person.

Requesting Voicemail in Hillside Place
Voice mail is available to students in Hillside Place at no charge. Because dialtone is automatically available in Hillside Place, students do not have to notify Telcom of their intention to utilize local phone services or domestic long distance services. However, Telcom does need to be notified if a student wishes to utilize the free voice mail service. With multiple students per room, voicemail trees can be set up so each student has their own private voicemail box.
You can request your private voicemail box by completing our online request form.
Requesting Voicemail in the Residence Halls/Daniell Heights
The University provides analog telephone services to residents of the Residence Halls and Daniell Heights which includes free voice mail.
