Telcommunications Services offers cellular phone service on a rental basis to administrative users. Those interested in obtaining the service must complete the Cellular Service Request Form. No other cellular service except those offered or arranged by Telecommunications Services are authorized for employee use and payment with university funds. All associated costs will be billed t othe appropriate department. This policy applies to the use of cellular services paid for by university funds. Because premium rates apply to cellular calls, and because the university promotes safe and responsible use of cellular devices, the following additional restrictions apply:

  1. The call must be placed on a non-cellular phone if one is accessible.
  2. If possible, the call should be delayed until a non-cellular phone is accessible.
  3. Cell phones should not be used while operating motor vechicles or engaging in other hazardous activities requiring focused attention.
