There are phone jacks in each of the residence hall rooms at 10 West, the Modern Theatre Residence Hall, Miller Hall and 150 Tremont. Local phone service is included in room and board charges. Students are urged to inform family and friends of their telephone numbers so that they can receive calls directly. Personal calls cannot be taken at the front desk telephone or by a member of the Residence Life and Housing staff.

The Department of Residence Life and Housing may give out student phone numbers in the residence halls only to other administrative and academic offices. The Department of Residence Life and Housing does not give out phone numbers to the public.

It is important that students utilize the on campus phone system as it may be the only number the Department of Residence Life and Housing has to reach students. Residents wishing to request a private University number may do so by e-mailing

Special Considerations for Residents Living at the Wyndham Hotel:

A telephone is provided in each room, and all rooms have voicemail. All phone calls (except room-to-room calls) are charged to the student’s account. The Department of Residence Life and Housing therefore strongly encourages students to use their cell phones while in the hotel. The phone number for the Wyndham Hotel is 617.742.7630. Callers can ask for students by name or room number.
