UC, Long Distance Telephone Services

On this page, you can learn about long distance telephone service.


Campus departments are responsible for reviewing all long distance charges billed to their accounts for accuracy.  In addition, campus departments are responsible for ensuring long distance calls are in support of University business.

Toll-free numbers

Technology Services offers toll free numbers to units who wish to provide toll free telephone access to their offices. The sponsoring unit pays usage charges of $0.07 per minute for calls placed to their toll free number from the United States and $0.14 per minute for calls placed from Canada. A service establishment fee of $70.00 applies to new numbers. Toll free numbers work in conjunction with University telephone numbers. If a new University telephone number is required, the standard connection fee and monthly rates also apply.

These rates apply to both legacy Centrex voice and Skype for Business/Lync toll-free service.
