What can you tell me about my (student) phone in my campus residence? (link)

If your campus residence is in the dorms, apartments, or sororities, your phone is already installed and ready for use. It is a Rolm 120 digital phone with the following features:

• Single-line digital telephone with 12 special function buttons
• Eight common function buttons (hold, connect, transfer, volume up, volume down, flash, DND, message waiting)
• One button to indicate line is in use
• One-way speaker (you can hear but not speak)
• Two spare buttons to access many other options
• Four-digit dialing on campus
• PhoneMail (Rolm's voice mail)
• Do Not Disturb (DND) feature

If you reside in one of the fraternities, you will need to provide your own phone for your room. Since the phone lines in the fraternities are analog, a normal single line phone like you have at home is all you need (older rotary phones will not work on this system). However, in order to more easily take advantage of some of the system features, it will be beneficial to have a phone that has a "FLASH" button on it, but it is not required.

What can you tell me (student) about long distance service phone in my campus residence? (link)

Placement of outgoing long distance calls requires the use of your personal 7-digit authorization code. Your long distance code will be in you WebAdvisor account . No deposit is required for long distance service. No subscription fee or monthly service fee will be charged for an authorization code.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your authorization code and you will be responsible for all calls placed with your authorization code. If your authorization code is lost or stolen, or if for any reason you feel the security of this number has been compromised, immediately contact the W&L Telecommunications Office in person. Because of the serious nature of the loss of an authorization code, if the Telecommunications Office is closed, you should contact University Security immediately at 8999.

Since your telephone service is provided by the University, you may not subscribe to any "residential" long distance plan offered by another long distance carrier. However, you may obtain access to the interstate common carrier of your choice by establishing a calling card account with them and dialing the carrier's "800" access number. You may also reach an alternate carrier by dialing 9 + 1010xxx + 0 + phone number (for example, to access AT&T using this method, you would dial 9 + 1010288 + 0 + phone number). Contact your carrier for their three digit code and rates. Be aware that many advertised calling cards have per call surcharges or monthly fees associated with them, so read the fine print before committing to any of these services. Please remember that your alternate carrier calling card account can't be associated with your W&L phone system telephone number. A substantial service fee will be charged for calls billed back to your W&L telephone number. For more information, contact the Telecommunications Office.

Complaints related to operator services from any carrier may be addressed to: FCC, Common Carrier Bureau Enforcement Division, 2025 M Street NW, Washington DC, 20554.

How do I use FLASH feature on my phone if I live off campus? (link)

The FLASH function places any call on soft hold so that you can access a feature or dial another party. The soft hold lasts until you hang up or reconnect the call.

If you are not sure whether to FLASH before using a system feature, remember that you must have dial tone before using a feature. So, if you don't have dial tone, FLASH.

As a resident of off-campus housing, you provide your own phone and it is suggested that you use a phone that has a FLASH button since this feature is used to access so many system features. If you do not have a phone with a FLASH button, do the following: Press the switch hook on your phone for one second Listen for a tone followed by the high pitched holding tone

Note: Holding the switch hook down for longer than one second can disconnect your call.

Basic telephone service on the University system has been provided in your room fee. The phone jack in your room is active and will accept a standard home phone or similar device.

The phone service in the fraternity and International house is slightly different from the phone service in the dorms. Dorm phones are on a digital service but our off-campus buildings are on an analog system. Because analog systems do not require a special phone, residents of our off-campus housing provide their own phones and may use any basic home type phone device.

• Students must not bill calls directly to their residence hall telephone number (i.e., accepting collect calls and third party calls). The cost of the call plus a handling fee of $20.00 will be charged to the extension to which the call has been billed.
• University telephones must not be removed from their assigned locations. The ROLM-phone will not work with any other system. The actual cost to replace a missing phone or phones damaged beyond repair will be charged to resident of the room. Phones will not be replaced until a report has been filed with the Telecommunications Office.
• If you damage or deface your phone, a charge for damages, time, and materials will be made against your account for any repairs (usually a minimum of $50).
• Students must keep the phones plugged in at all times. If a phone is detected unplugged, a $5.00 fee will be charged. Unplugged phones create problems for our system. The Do Not Disturb (DND) feature has been provided to help you avoid this fee.
• Be aware that some 800 number calls convert to toll calls (900 number). If you connect with one of these numbers, the cost of the call will be passed along to you. Direct dialing of 900 number services is blocked in our system.
• If your authorization code is lost or stolen, or if for any reason you feel the security of this number has been compromised, immediately contact W&L's Telecommunications Office in person. You will be responsible for all calls made prior to your notification in person. Because of the serious nature of the loss of an authorization code, if the Telecommunications Office is closed, you should contact University Security immediately.

If you elect not to use the University's system, you will need to acquire a calling card from the carrier of your choice for the placement of long distance calls. Access to alternate carriers is available through the W&L system by dialing the carriers "800" access numbers.

Contact your carrier for their three digit code and rates.

Washington and Lee University does not charge residents for the alternate carrier access described above. You must have an existing calling/credit card arrangement with the alternate carrier and must not associate that account with your local number nor allow charges to be billed to your local number. A substantial service fee will be assessed for all calls billed back to W&L numbers.

What can you tell me (student) about the 911 service? (link)

W&L’s system is linked directly to the area Emergency 911 notification system. 911 should only be used in life threatening situations. Minor emergency calls should be placed to University Security at 8999 from any W&L extension. You may place a call to E-911 by dialing 9+911. In most cases, the E-911 dispatcher will see the phone number you are dialing from and your location on their dispatch screen.

If you accidentally dial 911, please don’t hang up. Simply identify yourself and tell them there is no emergency at your location. There are cases when 911 is accidentally dialed, especially on international calls which require a 9-0-11 prefix or when using a fax machine. If you hang up, the 911 dispatcher is obligated to pursue the call to try to determine if there is an actual emergency.

Be sure to dial carefully. If you unintentionally contact a 911 dispatcher, please explain your mistake to them and you will have played an important role in making the system work properly (and you won’t be responsible for emergency crews rolling up to your dorm on a false alarm).
