The Telecommunications Office is responsible for all phones used on campus. There are two types of desk phones that we offer:

Analog Phone w/Message Waiting Indicator & Speakerphone - $35.00

Digital Phone w/16 buttons & display - $90.00

Dialing Pattern

Salisbury University's on-campus dialing pattern requires users to dial the last 5-digits of an individual's complete phone number.  Outside callers must still dial the full 10-digit number to reach someone on-campus.

  • If your extension begins with 3, precede that number with (410) 54.

  • If your extension begins with 4, precede that number with (410) 33.

  • If your extension begins with 5, you cannot dial this number from the
    outside. This is an on-campus number only.

  • If your extension begins with 6, precede that number with (410) 54.

  • If your extension begins with 7, precede that number with (410) 67.

  • If your extension begins with 8, precede that number with (410) 54.
