Long distance charges are billed to you on your Student Fee Account.
How Do I Use My Phone?
To dial an outside line you must press '9' before dialing the number. In Toronto you must dial the area code, then the phone number to be connected.
For example: To dial Ryerson's main phone line 416-979-5000, you must press 9, then 416, then 979-5000. Once you have dialled these numbers your call will be connected.
When you are dialling a number on campus you only need to dial the four digit extension.
