Call an International Phone Number


In order to place international long distance phone calls from your campus desk phone, you will need to use an authorization code.  Authorization codes allow you to charge international calling fees to a specific campus index.  If you charge calls to more than one index, a separate authorization is required for each index.  

Follow the steps below to order an authorization code and place international calls.


Steps to Take

Order an authorization code

Your departmental business office can request an authorization code by submitting a Customer Service Request (CSR)

Place international call

Dial the following:

  1. * 6 *
  2. Your authorization code
  3. # 1 6
  4. Country Code
  5. City Code
  6. Phone number:
    • If you have a five-digit code, add 1 before your code:  *6* 1 XXXXX # 16 (country code) (city code) XXX-XXXX
    • If you have a seven-digit code, simply enter your seven digits:  *6* XXXXXXX #16 (country code) (city code) XXX–XXXX
