You can access your voicemail from off campus by dialing 212-396-MAIL. You will then have the same prompts you have as if you were on campus.
Any long distance requested must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org, but the request must come from the chair/director of the department. The request must clarify if you need beyond tri-state or out of the country.
You can skip any of the menu's by pressing * and then the number. For example, *9, will allow you to complete the request for choice 9 without having to wait for the whole menu.
If you would like to have it set up to receive your voicemails via email, you can send a request to helpdesk with your full name and your full telephone number. Our telecom team prefers to complete this request for users.
