A student’s personal cell phone is their primary telephone phone service on campus. Micro cellular antennas are installed at numerous locations on campus, providing coverage for major cellular providers. If your cell phone will be your primary phone contact don’t forget to update your contact information in the Student Portal - MyUCSC.

What if I don’t have a cell phone?

Hall telephones are located in common areas of each college and residential community and are available for any residential student to use to make local calls or to receive calls.
