Campus Phone System

The campus phone system allows for multiple methods of accessing your phone and voicemail.

Jabber

Jabber allows users to access their phone, voicemail, and Jabber chat on their computers and mobile devices. On your iOS or Android device, you can download the free Cisco Jabber app from the App Store or Google Play store respectively.

The mobile Jabber app allows you to make and take calls from your campus extension. When you make calls through the Jabber app, the caller ID on the recipient’s phone looks like it would if you called from your campus desk phone.

Single Number Reach

Single Number Reach (SNR) allows your campus desk phone to ring on your cell phone. You can also configure a schedule for when your campus extension rings on your cell phone.

When someone calls your campus extension, you will get the call on your cell phone, but you will not see the same caller ID information.

When you call someone’s cell phone from your cell phone, their caller ID will display your cell phone number, not your campus phone number.

If you wish to have SNR setup for your extension, you must fill out the request form linked below.

Campus Voicemail

Your campus voicemail is accessible via your email (your direct extension only), Jabber (your direct extension only), or any phone on- or off-campus. You can find instructions for accessing your email below.

From your Providence College email account:

The voicemail system is linked to the College’s email system. You should receive an email for every voicemail you receive to your direct extension. This is not setup for general departmental extensions or email accounts.

If you delete the voice message from your email, it will delete from your voicemail box on your phone and vice versa. If you mark the email as read but keep the email, it will keep the voice message in your voicemail box, but it will not display as new.

You can save voice messages by saving the audio file attachment from your email to your computer. You can also forward voice messages by simply forwarding the email to another user.

From Cisco Jabber:

Simply click or tap on the Voice Messages button in Jabber, and you will see all your voice messages.

See the Jabber Reference Card for more information on Cisco Jabber.
