There are three options for telephone service on the Amherst College campus.
- Bring a cell phone from home or obtain one locally upon your arrival.
- Order wired residential phone service for your dormitory room from Verizon.
- Voice over IP (VoIP--see below).
With the second option, which requires you to supply your own telephone, 2.4GHz cordless telephones are not allowed, as they can cause interference with wireless data networks.
