  Common Dialing Instructions

The Okanagan campus telephone system has limited capacity for remote work options. We strongly suggest identifying and using other means if possible – such as email, canvas messaging, etc. If your position absolutely relies on your phone being available, there are a few options:

  • Voicemail to email: This takes a recording of the voicemail message and emails it to your inbox, where you can listen to the message. Please submit a ticket to request this feature.
  • Call centres: we can enable a telephone to be taken home and connect back to campus. This is severely limited and will only be available for crucial functions. Please have your manager submit a ticket to explore this option.
