Long Distance Services (Retirement in Progress)

Making Long Distance Calls Using a Personal Calling Card or Credit Card

Domestic Calling Card Calls

Follow the instructions on the back of your personal calling card, OR:

  1. Dial "9" + "0" + area code + number + "0" and wait for instructions.

  2. Give the operator your calling card or credit card number, OR:

  3. Follow the instructions to enter the calling card or credit card number yourself (must be using a touch-tone telephone).

International Calling Card Calls

  1. Dial "9" + "01" + country code + city code + local number. An operator will come on the line to assist you.

Please note:

  • All University phones automatically access AT&T for calling card and collect calls. To use another long distance carrier, the caller may dial "9" + "10XXX" + "0" + area code + phone number. The "10XXX" is the carrier's access number with XXX representing the carriers unique three-digit code. For example, AT&T's access number is "10288". Some carriers also provide access through "800" or "950" numbers. Contact your long distance company for its access number(s).

  • For AT&T rate information, dial "9" + "0" + "0" or visit our Long Distance Rates page.

Calling Collect

  1. Dial "9" + "0" + desired area code and number.

  2. Give the Operator the number to call, the name of the person you are calling, and your name.
