Voicemail

You may choose to receive voicemail messages via email, phone, or both; it will start as email-only and IT will change this on your request.


While your incoming messages will be delivered to your email, you will need to log into the voicemail system if you wish to set a greeting to play when someone reaches your voicemailbox.

Connecting to the voicemail system:

  • From any phone on campus -> Dial 2000 OR hit the Voicemail button (if your phone has one)
  • From off campus -> Dial (860) 963-5790

Logging into the voicemail system:

  • From any telephone, enter your extension plus pound (ex. 1440#) then your password/pin plus pound (ex. 6543#) at the prompts.
    • You can save time if using your deskphone by pressing pound when prompted for your extension.
    • The default password is 1212


Most commonly used options from the main menu:

Analog Telephones

While many offices are outfitted with telephones based on current technology, the school still has many locations with standard telephones. These units can connect to voicemail, but do not offer easy access to call features such as forwarding/transfers/conferencing. If you find yourself in need of these features and your workspace does not have a newer-model telephone, please contact IT.
