Resident Telephone Information

Telephone service is provided to each dorm room by the Office of Information Technology. All phone lines can dial on-campus extensions and toll-free numbers. Off-campus calls can be made with calling cards. Phone bills will not be provided. Residents are required to bring their own telephones.

Easy Dialing:

  • On-campus extensions: dial the last 4 digits of the phone number
  • Toll free calls: 9 + 1 + 8XX - XXXX
  • Local 630 area code calls: 9 + calling card number + phone number
  • Local calls outside 630 area code and Long Distance: 9 + calling card number + 1 + area code + phone number

Campus Directories:

If you have any questions or problems with your phone service, review the Jack Identification page, then contact the Helpdesk at helpdesk@ben.edu or call (630) 829-6684. Please provide your full name, hall and room number, and your 4-digit extension.
