Communications

Phone and Fax 

Your office or work area will have a phone. To access an outside line for a local off-campus call (or an 800 number), dial 9, then the 7 digits of the off-campus number. For all long distance calls within the USA (except to an 800 number), dial 8 (not 9!), then 1, then the area code and number. Dialing 8 for long distance calls accesses the State Telephone System, which is much cheaper than regular long distance service. Your department will be charged for, and have a record of, all your long distance calls. Check with your supervisor for policies and procedures for calls outside the United States or for use of the office fax machine.

Mail

Your office or work area will receive mail and have outgoing mail picked up daily. For special pickup for express mail service, contact the Mail Center at ext. 2215. The Mail Center is located in the Laboratory Sciences building, Room 110. 


Email and Network Access 

You will be granted computer network access. Your network access provides you with an email address and access to the University's networked computer applications, as designated by your supervisor, including the library catalog, databases, and the Internet. By using your username and password, you can access your email account or other networked services from the computer in your office or your budgetary unit office, from any of the computers in the general access Computer Lab (Room IS 1120) or from a home computer via the Internet.
 
Your supervisor or the CIT Help Desk (ext. 2309) will provide you with your username and a temporary password, which will allow you to access the system to establish your own password.
