Two important safety tips the university community should know about campus telephones:

  • The vast majority of the Avaya telephones in university offices rely on building electrical power and the university’s data network, and will not work during network or power outages. If you need more information about telephones that operate independently of building electricity, please contact Network Infrastructure and Services.
  • There is an address (room, building, and street) associated with each telephone. That address is provided to emergency responders and must be kept up to date. Moving or installing phones yourself can lead to incorrect information. To ensure accuracy, please contact Network Infrastructure and Services to place orders to install or move telephones.
