800 Number Data Access to CU Network

800 Number Data Access to CU Network

We provide a toll-free 800 number to access the Columbia campus network from any remote U.S. location. Using a modem and a regular telephone line, you can connect to Columbia at bandwidth speeds of up to 56 Kbps.

You don't have to worry about differing carriers or long-distance charges. (Please note that some hotels do charge a nominal fee for placing any data calls.)

There are no one-time or monthly charges for using this service. Although the call is made to a toll-free Columbia online service from anywhere in the US, there is a usage charge of 8.5 cents per minute billed to your Personal Security Code (PSC) account. Note: If you already have a PSC account, please request to have your 800 number access service activated.

To order service, please contact the CUIT Service Desk at 212-854-1919.
