Work on University phone lines on 7 November

Phone image

Phone lines at the University’s Whiteknights and London Road campuses will be out of service for two hours, starting 6.00 pm on Thursday 7 November.

During this time, you will not be able to make or receive calls from people outside the University on your landline. You will, however, be able to make or receive calls from other colleagues within the University. The phones and alarm systems in lifts around the two campuses will also not work. 

Our switchboard number (0118 987 5123) will continue to receive calls and enable the Security services to deal with any emergency situation. Cash tills and refuge call points on the Whiteknights and London Road campuses will continue to work as normal. Calls on your mobile phone can also be made and received as normal. 

The maintenance work is part of the ‘Communicating with Teams’ project and will help us install equipment that will eventually replace our existing phone system. 

If you have any queries about this work or the outage please email unified-communications@reading.ac.uk.
