The department is also responsible for the monthly telephone bills for all WSU departments and resident students’ semester communication fees. Telecommunications Services houses the main system for incoming calls to the university. These calls are routed by the campus automated attendant system to the requested departments and individuals.

Unified Messaging

On February 6, 2018, CaTS completed an upgrade to a new voicemail system for the campus community. One benefit of this system provides voicemail subscribers the opportunity to participate in Unified Messaging (UM). With UM, subscribers can receive new voicemail messages in the form of an audio file (.wav) attachment to their Wright State email address.

If you elect to use this service, a one-time fee of $50 will be charged back via a Journal Voucher submitted in Banner by your Business Manager. This charge will cover the cost of the license for this service. To request this service, visit the ServiceNow request form.
