Additional phone jacks
All residence hall rooms have at least one phone jack per resident. If more jacks are needed, students may purchase line splitters and install them. Some apartments and cottages may have wall phones with no additional jack. In these cases, CIT will install an additional jack directly below the phone so that other devices may be attached. CIT will not install additional phone jacks in bedrooms in cottages or apartments.
Extensions and other attachments
One extension can be connected to your telephone line by plugging into the additional jack. You must provide the telephone and line cord. Modems, answering machines, and FAX machines can be attached, but be aware that not all devices are capable of properly answering calls from the Hope phone system. Consult with CIT before purchasing for recommended machines. CIT approved line cords, telephones, and answering machines are available at the Hope-Geneva Bookstore. Additional telephone lines are available upon request on a limited basis for extra cost. Cordless phones are not recommended.
CIT will perform repairs on college-owned phones and wiring. Damage caused by abuse may result in a charge to the student or students using the phone.
Collect or Third Party Billing
No incoming collect and/or third party calls can be accepted on your telephone. All occupants share responsibility for use of the telephone. In the event that any collect or third party calls are billed to a phone, the charges will be split equally by all occupants of the room, unless other arrangements are made. A $10.00 surcharge will be added to the bill. However, outbound collect calls can be made.
Calls cannot be made to 900 numbers.
Fraudulent Telephone Calls
Any student making fraudulent phone calls will pay the cost of those calls plus a penalty, including the cost of collection. Any person making such calls is subject to college discipline and/or criminal prosecution.
