All on-campus residences are prewired for telephone, high-speed wired (Ethernet) and wireless data communications, and cable television. The room charge covers the cost of a telephone line and basic CATV channels in each suite, as well as wired and wireless Yale Network access for each resident. Telephone and cable television services are administered by the Information Technology Services (ITS) Network Services Department. Data communications services are administered by the Student Technology Collaborative. For more information visit www.yale.edu/its/stc. You should also carefully review Yale’s Information Technology Appropriate Use policy at www.yale.edu/ppdev/policy/1607/1607.pdf.
Call back, call forwarding, consultation, last number dialed, and conference calling are included in your common room telephone service. Calling cards and voice mail service are available upon request. You will be notified of your telephone number during the summer. Yale does not provide telephone sets, so you should plan to bring one with you.
Long distance service is provided by the University’s private network, Yalenet. Toll calls can be made using your private toll authorization number (TAN), a six-digit number that allows you to place long-distance calls from any telephone on campus.
Basic CATV service consists of approximately 40 channels, seven of them reserved for Yale academic programming. See www.yale.edu/its/accounts/cable-channels.html for Yale’s cable channel guide. Residents have the option to order the expanded basic channels as well as individual premium channels from Comcast, the local cable provider, at extra cost. Cable-ready televisions can be plugged into the CATV jack directly; no converter box is required. For more information, see www.yale.edu/its/accounts/cabletv.html.
