Telephone service is available throughout Brown University. The main telephone system provides on-campus service with standard features such as call hold, transfer, waiting, forwarding, conference calling, last number redial, voicemail, and music on hold. Local, long distance and international calling services are available. Telecommunications coordinates with other university groups to deploy phone system in new locations and upgrade phone systems in remodeled locations.
Starting in the winter of 2016, we will begin replacing Brown’s outdated phone system with a network-based system from Cisco. In addition to receiving a new desk telephone, you will also be able to conduct secure, fully-encrypted conversations using your Brown telephone number from your smartphone, tablet, or computer over any wifi network.
