The UIC Page Operators can be reached by dialing "0" from any campus telephone, 312-996-6780, or 312-996-2133. For emergency calls (codes and stat pages) dial 996-6788 or 171 (from campus telephones). Detailed instructions for paging, retrieval, and status changes are located in the UIC Paging Directory.
If the caller wishes to hold, the caller is placed on the Meet Me/Call Connect System. This system allows a direct connection between the caller and the subscriber (the operator is not on the line). After the operator follows the appropriate procedures, the subscriber will receive ext. 3-7985 on their pager. When the subscriber dials ext. 3-7985, the direct connection is made. When the prompts asks, the caller has the option of leaving a name. Calls hold for approximately three minutes.
The UIC Page Operators also page (approved) overhead requests, such as blood drives and hospital sponsored events.
