Information Technology manages billing and distribution of long distance codes for staff and faculty, and has provisioned this enterprise-wide service through a third party long distance telephone company.
Request an Authorization Code:
An authorization code is required to make long distance calls from the campus telephone system.
This code is requested by the system once a user has dialled a 10-digit long distance phone number preceded by a "9" and "1" ahead of the 10 digits.
Requests should be made by the Department Head or Admin Assistant. Staff moves from department to department require email notification to IT Telecom Service group in order that GL account codes tied to a long-distance account can be updated or re-issued.
The form to request a Long Distance Authorization Code for outbound dialing can be found online:
Long distance, personal calls must not be charged to Trent University numbers. Use a personal cell phone, or you can dial 9-1-800-555-1111 to charge a personal long distance call to your Bell calling card.
