Use of University Property


The University's main switchboard number is (610) 519-4500.  However, every telephone extension can be dialed directly from the outside by using the extension number with the (610) area code and the prefix "519".  When calling from one employee telephone to another within the system, simply use 9 and the four-digit extension number. To reach an outside line from within the University, dial 8 first and then the number.

All calls, local and long distance, made from your extension are charged to your department's budget. Use of University phones, including University owned cell phones, for a personal reason is discouraged, except in case of emergencies. Employees making frequent and/or lengthy personal calls may be charged for the cost of such calls and may also be subject to disciplinary action. Additionally, cell phones, whether personally owned or University owned, should not be used while driving on campus.  The University also strongly discourages the use of cell phones while driving off campus, particularly for University business.
