Several services are available to support and enable users to make telephone calls on campus.  Currently, Technology Solutions maintains two types of telephone systems: analog phones and phones using voice over IP technology. In support of calls, services are provided for conference calls and operator services. Only UIC’s authorized business managers are able to request telephone services.

Phones (Centrex)

  • This system allows telephone calls and telecommunications to be conducted over traditional analog circuitry


  • All VoIP phones come with a standard set of features such as caller ID, web-enabled voicemail, customizable ring type, and a web portal that allows users to program speed dials and other features of their phones such as call forwarding
