Telephone Availability for Residential Students
As was publicized on the UCSC Housing web site throughout the spring and summer of 2012, UCSC is in the process of upgrading its Information Technology (IT) services for students on campus. As part of these efforts the campus removed the underutilized and outdated landline phones in students’ rooms and installed new landline phones in common areas located throughout UCSC’s residential communities. The phones are available for any residential student to use to make or receive calls. For long-distance/toll calls, a calling card is needed.
Should a student's family need to contact a student, it is important that they have current contact information. If a student's cell phone is not functional or a student does not have a cell phone and a situation is urgent, there are alternative contact methods:
To report an emergency, or a health/safety issue regarding a student resident:
- Family/guardian should contact the Campus Police Department at (831) 459-2231.
To contact a residential student regarding an urgent matter:
- 8am - 5pm: Family/guardian should contact the student's residential community housing office.
- 5pm - 8am: Family/guardian should contact the Campus Police Department at (831) 459-2231.
