IP Phone Policy & Request Form
All residence hall rooms are equipped with a wireless access point for an IP phone connection. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), is a technology that allows you to make voice calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of a regular (or analog) phone line. Students are prohibited from bringing their own landline due to service not being supported for the device. Students can purchase an IP phone that is compatible with the wireless access point for $150.00 from the Office of Residence Life and Housing. Using an IP phone allows for students to have phone service and voicemail activated to a student’s room along with call waiting and caller ID. Activation of IP phone will provide local dial service for the campus and the Winston-Salem community. Long distance telephone service is not provided.
For questions concerning phone and/or network services, please contact the Office of Residence Life and Housing at 336.758.5185 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To request an IP phone and activation, submit the form below:
