How do I get a Skype for Business/Lync phone?
Phone options for staff
For Faculty and Staff:
Your department's Telecom Unit Coordinator (TUC) will know what department phones are available and advise on any neccessary hardware purchases.
Have some information ready for the TUC:
- Intended usage for the phone (personal use, common area, etc.)
- What kind of computer or phone you are using, i.e. Mac, Linux, Windows
- The location and number of the network jack, i.e. HAP7-12
Technology Services also provides excellent documentation on additional considerations to make before purchasing a Skype for Business/Lync phone device.
For Professional Students:
Consult with your advisor on the availability of a Skype for Business/Lync phone device. If unsure, please have them consult the Telecom Unit Coordinator from their home department (see above for details).
