Centrex Phones

Throughout the Law School campus and at each dormitory entry there are centrex phones. These phones allow you to call within the University telephone system, including the University Police.

Changes to Basic Services

The Facilities Office will work with you to order changes to your current telephone service. Most service change requests take approximately five business days to process. From July through September a longer period of time is required due to the number of requests being made.

Changes to your service may include:

  • You wish to add appearances of another user’s number
  • You would like to change appearances of another number from ringing to non-ringing
  • You want to restrict dialing of your number to within Harvard, within Massachusetts, or within the U.S.

Submit a request

Conference Calls

Conference calls involving more than three parties should be booked through the Harvard operators at 495-5575. Twenty-four hours notice is preferable but they will be happy to set up your conference call with less notice.

The office of Media Services owns a Polycom Speakerphone which is very convenient for large parties listening to a conference call. Please call 495-4840 or email them at av@law.harvard.edu, to book the phone set and to ensure that you have booked a conference room or classroom with an active Analog telephone line.

Jack Installations – New

New jack installations are coordinated by UIS and an outside contracted vendor.

Harvard Law School’s standard jack installation is a Voice/Data/Data jack. This jack type allows for one telephone line and two computers to be plugged in. They are available in different combinations of voice and data ports. Prices vary according to the combination chosen.
