Using AU's Enhanced Cellular Telephone Services


The university's excellent wireless infrastructure provides high-quality cell phone reception throughout the campus, making cell phones as reliable as traditional phones when using one of the university's participating carriers.

We encourage you to subscribe to a cellular phone service. Cell phones from any provider may be used; however, Sprint (AU's preferred provider), AT&T, and T-Mobile USA subscribers will benefit from enhanced in-door reception in the main campus and AU off campus buildings. Information on AU plans may be found under the TECHNOLOGY link when logged in to the my.american.edu portal. For assistance in selecting the best rate plan and phone for your needs, contact our voice applications analyst at x3699.

As a member of the AU community, you will want to be more connected than ever before. AU Campus Connect empowers the university community to ubiquitously experience everything the campus has to offer in a safe and informed way.

Through AU Campus Connect, Rave Wireless provides a suite of Web applications that bring the campus to your mobile device or phone. Each of the applications provides a useful campus tool to keep you safe, informed, and connected on campus. To learn more and to order a phone, go to www.getrave.com. To receive alerts regarding campus emergencies, school closings, class cancellations, or other university communications, you must subscribe to the AU Campus Connect emergency alert system by registering at www.getrave.com, using your AU user name and password.

 

Courtesy Telephones in Residence Hall

For students without cell phones, each residence hall floor has one courtesy telephone that may be used to make local calls at no cost and long distance calls using a calling card. These phones also can receive local and long distance calls. However, out of consideration for other floor residents, incoming calls should be scheduled so that you are available to answer the phone when it rings.
