Voicemail

Every residence hall room has at least one phone port. The ability to dial local calls is free, but students will need to purchase a calling card in order to make long distance calls. Students need a basic touchtone phone without an answering machine. The University provides each room with voicemail that accommodates multiple occupants. 

Each room has a maximum of four mail boxes assigned to it. To access and setup your voice mail for the FIRST time you need to:

  1. Dial “69999"
  2. Enter your mailbox number (example 16400)
  3. Enter your security code. The FIRST time you setup your voice mail, your security code will be "0000"
  4. A "setup wizard" will walk you through the rest of the setup

To access your voicemail after initial setup:

  1. Dial "69999"
  2. Enter your mailbox number
  3. Enter your security code choosen during setup

Review all of the options associated with the CMU voice mail system. Once your voice mail is setup, the next time you pickup your phone AND you have a voice mail message you will hear a voice that says "YOU HAVE A MESSAGE."

To access your voice mail while on Christmas or Spring break from home or off campus, dial 660-248-6999 and enter your voice mailbox number when prompted.

IMPORTANT NOTE: 911 service is available on the Central Methodist University campus. If there is an emergency and you need to contact our local 911 office, you may either dial 911 or 9-911. We also recommend contacting the RA or Hall Director on duty and informing them of any situations. The 911 office has the ability to trace the 911 call back to a residence hall room.
