Local and On-Campus Service
All phones on campus may be used to call on-campus numbers by simply dialing the four digit extension.
Local calls are free and may be made by dialing a 9, followed by the number. Calls made to numbers with a 612 area code may be dialed with or without the area code. NCU is in area code 612. The Twin Cities region has four area codes: 612, 651, 763, and 952. Most numbers in these four area codes are free local calls (do not dial 1 first).
NCU offers long distance calling authorization codes to students and employees. These can be obtained from the IT Technical Support Center (Miller Hall 226). If international calling access is desired, please request it when signing up for your authorization code. Rates are 4.9 cents/minute for out of state calls and 6.9 cents/minute for calls within Minnesota (24 hours a day, 7 days a week). Directory assistance calls are billed $1.25 per call.
Collect Calls and 1-900 calls are prohibited at NCU.
