Resident Telephone & Internet Service

Telephone Service

Due to the popularity of cell phones, as of July 10th, 2015, in-room telephone service will be discontinued. All residence halls are equipped with a general-purpose hall phone capable of making local phone calls. Hall phones are located on every floor and in lobbies. It is imperative that Campus Housing has your cell phone number in-case of an emergency.

Don’t have a cell phone? A number of free or low-cost services exist to make and receive phone calls. These services rely on a smartphone, tablet or computer with wifi or a 3G/4G data plan.

Service Fee Website
Google Voice Free if calling US or Canada; international rates apply google.com/voice
Skype 2.3¢/min or $2.95/month for unlimited calling skype.com
Viber 1.3¢/min viber.com
magicJack / magicApp $1.99/month for unlimited calling with magicApp magicjack.com

 

Internet Service

Resident students with a computer meeting the minimum computing standards have the option to connect to the University network with either wireless or wired connections. We recommend wired for best performance.

To connect using a wired connection, students must purchase a Cat5e or Cat6 ethernet cable. These cables can be purchased from Trinity’s bookstore or any other electronics store.

If you are in Main Hall, Alumnae or Cuvilly residence halls, connect your computer to the purple port for network and IPTV. Do not connect to the blue port.

If you are in the Kerby residence hall, connect your computer to the bottom two ports for network and IPTV.

All users must agree to abide by the Technology & Telecommunications policy to connect to Trinity’s Network.


For best service, contact Technology Services using our online Service Request Form. You can also contact us at 202-884-9811. The Technology Services office is located in the basement of Main Hall in office B-20.
