Every residence hall room has the capability of having a telephone line on the College Telephone System. However, students that have cellular phones typically use their cell phones for all their telephone needs.
If you feel you would need a college phone line in your room please email email@example.com with your name, residence and room number. Also indicate if you would like to have a voice mailbox on the College Messaging System or if you intend to use your own answering machine.
You must provide your own analog telephone.
From your phone line in your room on-campus dialing and local dialing is free. Regional, long distance and international calls
require a pre-paid phone card or a calling card with a toll
free (800/888) access number. The College Bookstore has phone cards for sale. Of course, you can also purchase phone
cards from other area stores and on many web sites.
See link above for dialing and voice mail information guides.
ITS does not provide any support for Internet capable phone services, and we do not guarantee they will work on the campus network. We do not recommend that students use such services.
The College does not have a contractual agreement with any
cellular carriers. AT&T Wireless and Verizon Wireless are the
two recommended vendors for service on our campus and in our area. Cellular service agreements can be acquired at the local stores The College Bookstore offers pre-paid cellular air time minutes.
AT&T Wireless offers a Hamilton College student discount of 16% off their personal service plan. The account must be in the student's name.
