Courtesy Phones – There are a number of courtesy phones located in most buildings on the John Carroll campus. These phones are easy to locate as they are red in color. The only exception would be the courtesy phones located in the entrance lobby of each of our eight residence halls.
The courtesy phones are restricted to on campus 4-digit dialing only, with the exception of an Emergency 911 call. Each courtesy phone is equipped with an amplified handset.
Convenience Phones – Each of our eight residence halls are equipped with convenience phones for local public access. These telephones are wall mounted in hallways or other high access areas in each residence hall.
The convenience telephones can be used to call any on campus, 4-digit telephone number, any local or toll free numbers, as well as Emergency 911 calls.
There is at least one convenience phone per floor, with the larger halls having several per floor. Long distance calling is restricted on these phones.
Dial 1234 to reach Campus Police. Dial 0 to reach the JCU Switchboard Operator.
NOTE: The phones located at the main entrance to each of the residence halls are not able to dial off campus, and are courtesy phones and not convenience phones, although they look similar.
