Telephone Service

Last Updated: 04/15/2020

The Voice/Data Service Request form has changed

Due to the retirement of CU Boulder’s legacy web infrastructure, we have rebuilt our Voice/Data Service Request form in a new location on the OIT website. If bookmarked, please update your URL to https://oit.colorado.edu/voice-data-form.

Who can get it

Telephone service (using Cisco VoIP phones) is available for faculty and staff in university buildings and offices.

Students are encouraged to bring a cell phone to campus. Basic land line phone service is not included in room and board for the residence halls and Bear Creek apartments. However, a telephone land line connection can be activated in your room for a non-refundable fee of $500 for the academic year. Contact Occupancy Management (303-492-6673) for requests or questions regarding land line connection activation.


Review our Telephone Service FAQ for cost, installation and other information.

How to get it

Faculty and staff

  • Contact your telecommunications liaison to order telephones, service and accessories.
  • Faculty and staff can pick out the Phones and Accessories they want and then contact their Liaison. Please keep in mind that long-distance authorization codes are not available to faculty and staff for personal use. In these instances, a third-party calling card will need to be obtained.
  • OIT offers the Jack/Port lookup tool in order for you to find which jacks in your office are available or in use. That information can be imported into a service request in order to activate or change jack status.
