Telecommunications FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions


Why do I need a PBN?

You need a PBN in order to make calls outside of our internal system. This includes local, long-distance, and international calls. You will need an active PBN to call toll free 800 numbers, although there is no charge for this. You do not need a PBN to call 911.

Can I use my PBN in another room?

Yes. Your PBN can be used from any phone on campus that has the ability to make calls outside of the phone system. 

I lost my PBN. How do I get a new one?

Stop by the Telecommunications Office and ask to have it changed.
