Phone Information for 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.
Long-distance calls can be placed from any campus phone using a prepaid long-distance card.
Do not accept a collect call on a campus telephone. Acceptance of a collect call will result in a $25 fine.
If you receive an obscene, harassing or threatening call, say nothing and calmly hang up. Notify campus security at x4444.
