About Telecommunications

The Telecommunications Department is part of Information Technology and Services. Our department oversees and coordinates voice services for student, faculty, and staff. Our goal is to provide information, service, and assistance for the use of state of the art communications services available for the campus community. From providing up-to-date telephone numbers for callers to the main switchboard to assisting staff with conference calling, or planning individual communications needs and researching future telecommunication trends, our professional staff can assist you.

You can explore our web site to learn more about the services we provide and how these services can be used to enhance your ability to use the telecommunications system here at Syracuse University.

  • The courtesy phones can also be used with calling cards or toll-free numbers to place long-distance calls.
  • Courtesy phones are not available in South Campus apartments.
