Help Line/Reporting Problems

Telecommunications provides a help line to assist staff and students who have questions or need assistance with phoneset features or Meridian Mail. You should also report problems with your line (i.e. no dial tone) to the appropriate help line. A trouble ticket is generated and the tickets are prioritized, and in most cases, corrected the same day. The help lines are available Monday-Friday from 8:00 am - 4:30 pm.

 Staff Help Line: at 581-1610

 Student Help Line: at 581-1609
