Telephone Services

 Student Telephone Service

Local telephone service is included in housing charges. Telephones are not included and must be provided by the student. Resident students can dial any local or intra-campus call with no additional charge. Samford no longer provides long-distance services to students. Most students use long-distance services provided by their personal cellular telephone service plan. Students who need long-distance services should arrange with a long-distance carrier and use that carrier’s access (usually dialing an 800 number) to make long-distance calls. For more information regarding telephone service, contact the Help Desk at 205-726-2662 or
