Phones

Campus Phone System

The W&M campus switched to a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone system in 2011.  The VoIP phones run through the campus network, connecting through a network jack.  The VoIP system integrates with your computer desktop and offers a wide variety of phone services. 

Voice Mail
First things first!  Get your Voice Mail box set-up by setting a password and a greeting. Learn more about this and other voice mail functions on our Voice Mail website.

Dialing Instructions

On-Campus: just dial the last five digits of the campus phone number.  For example, 757-221-5555 would be 1-5555.

Off-Campus:  In most cases, to dial off-campus simply add a "9" in front of the phone number. 

For more dialing instructions see Phone Services for Departments
