Sometimes, a regular telephone call is all that is needed. For 1-2 people you can use your office speakerphone. When you have a larger group ICT can provide a conference phone that can accomodate about 20 people. The Global Collaboratory is designed to handle audio conferences for a full room. We can even wire the Public Events Room for large telephone conferences.
Three-way Phone Conference
Single-line campus phones (most faculty offices) have threeway calling built-in. While you are speaking with one party, simply press the flash button, dial the second person and speak with them, then press the flash button again and all three of you are joined together.

Meet Me Conference
The university offers two conference lines that each handle about 30 callers. You must request use of the service ahead of your meeting. There is a per-minute use charge applied to your campus phone line. This service can be used in addition to a speakerphone or ICT conference phone.
Setup a Meet Me Session
Call ITS Telecom (x4730 option 0) to make arrangements.
They will need to know the start and end time of your meeting.
They will give you a local 315- phone number and a 1-800 phone number.
Day of your Meet Me Session
- First person to call either number will hear the phone ring continuously until a second person calls.
- Each caller will then connect right to all the other callers.
