The Networking and Telecommunications group supports the campus wide telephone system. These responsibilities include installation and maintenance of telephone switches; installation of telephones and jacks; management of the voice mail and call accounting system; and coordination with 3rd party service providers.
The main college telephone number (401-825-1000) is answered by the switchboard operator. The switchboard operator routes calls to the appropriate offices, responds to general information questions from the public, and provides telephone extensions to internal callers. Dial 0 to reach the operator from an on campus phone.
You may call the Help Desk at ext. 1112 (401-825-1112) to request the installation of a telephone jack, add a telephone extension, add voice mail to an existing extension, or to report any telephone problems. If you have general questions about the CCRI telephone system, you may contact Bruce Barrett, Director, Networking and Telecommunications (ext 2466 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
