Telephone Service


Telephone services will be changing for the 2016-2017 fiscal year.

Details about phone service in the residence halls:

  • Temple no longer provides telephone service in residence hall rooms, as most students have their own cell phones.
    SMARTPHONE TIP: If you do not receive a strong cellular signal in your room, try using Wi-Fi Calling—a feature on many newer-model iPhones and Android phones that enables you to make and receive calls over a wireless network. Search for Wi-Fi Calling on your carrier’s website to see if your device supports this feature and how you can enable it. Note: For international calls, the rates from your calling plan may apply for Wi-Fi Calling.
  • All residence halls will have a security phone on each floor. Residents should become familiar with these phone locations.
  • Each suite in Morgan Hall has a phone for making local calls, along with a hotkey for calling campus police.
