Unified Communications

Unified Communications means the integration of two or more communication services into a single interface. These services include telephony, video conferencing, voicemail, faxing, and email. Work on Fordham University’s new state-of-the-art unified communications system began April 2016 and is expected to complete by June 2018. Please refer to the Unified Communications Launch page for more information about the new system and a timetable for deployment of the phones.

The Fordham IT's Unified Communications Department is comprised of specialists in voice products and services. They oversee intercampus, local and long distance telephone services, maintain university-issued handsets, provide training for using the University's unified communications system.

For all telephone service requests, please contact IT Customer Care. To route your request to the proper group, IT Customer Care may need your extension number and the type of handset you use.
