Phone Lines Per Residence Hall Room

While Hope College's Department of Computing and Information Technology (CIT) strives to be an enabling resource in the use of technology for academic study, office productivity, and other areas of college life, there occasionally comes a time when expectations and limits must be set in the form of policy.

It is not the intention of CIT to develop and enforce policies to bureaucratically offend and limit the people it serves; rather, these policies exist to ensure reliable, secure and fair technology solutions continue at Hope College.

Therefore, as you read the policy statement below, please keep in mind that its intention in the larger scope is to maintain an excellent technology infrastructure and not to limit creativity, academic freedom, or other appropriate and welcomed activities.

CIT and Residence Life sets the number of phone lines per cottage or apartment so that ratio of students to phone lines is 3:1 after rounding. To determine the number of lines, the number of students are divided by three, then rounded.

Therefore, the following table describes the number of phone lines for a given number of students:

# of Students Divided by 3 Rounded
2 .66 1
3 1 1
4 1.33 1
5 1.66 2
6 2 2
7 2.33 2
8 2.66 3
9 3 3

CIT will install additional lines for a charge of $15.00/month plus $50.00 installation. These lines are available on a limited basis, depending on the cabling in specific areas on campus. To order an additional line, contact CIT to set up the payment schedule and the line.
