Changing Our Jack Activation Strategy
ITS is changing our network jack activation strategy. We have eliminated all charges to departments for network jack activations (formerly $200 per jack). We have also begun a practice of de-activating any network jacks that have not been used in more than one year. Should you need to use a network jack that ITS has deactivated, submit a Data Jack Activation Request and ITS will reactivate it free of charge.

10-Digit Dialing for the 518 and 838
The Public Service Commission has announced the addition of the 838 area code to serve the 518 region with a continuing supply of phone numbers. Effective August 19, 2017, all local calls will require dialing the area code followed by the phone number (10-digit dialing). To make local calls from an on-campus phone, you must first dial "9" before the area code and phone number. Read More.
