Updating the online phone directory

Departmental phone coordinators are responsible for updating the online phone directory. Coordinators who are having difficulty updating the directory should contact the Telecom Help Center at 410-704-5151(option #1) for assistance.

Requesting a new telephone extension/port

To request a new telephone extension or port, have your departmental phone coordinator contact the Telecom Help Center. For data or telephone port requests, you should indicate whether the request is for a data connection, voice connection or both, and let us know the building, room number and location in the room where you would like the port installed; the name and telephone number of a contact person for the request; and your departmental budget code. For extension requests, you should indicate whether the extension should have voicemail, direct dialing, or be part of intercom group; any dialing restrictions such as campus only, local only, or national only; what name to appear on the phone's display; and any roll-over requests for the extension.
