Phone Information for Whitworth University Students


Widespread use of cell phones has greatly reduced the use of the university telephone system by on-campus students. Whitworth University will no longer assign individual telephone numbers or voicemail boxes to students. Floor courtesy phones remain available to students, but Whitworth no longer provides in-room phone jacks for student landlines and answering machines.
