Phone Information

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.
Be sure to set-up your voicemail.

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.


CMU has partnered with AT&T Mobility to offer students who are AT&T wireless customers a five percent discount off of monthly voice and data packages.
