The University Directory Service, formerly known as the Switchboard, is available by dialing 540-231-6000 (or 1-6000 from on-campus phones).

The University Directory Service connects people to different resources and offices around the university. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year. Once the 1-6000 number is dialed, the caller can either note the contact info, or be transferred to their desired point of contact. Agents have general knowledge of the university, and can help callers who may not know exactly which office or group they need to reach. It is also useful for those who are driving and need to connect via a hands-free device.
