Cellular Services

Effective April 1, 2015, the University has approved a Personal Communication Device policy. After reviewing the policy, please sign Appendix A and return to the Telecommunications Department along with the Cellular Device Request Form below.

All requests for University provided cellular devices -- new services, upgrades, or change in service -- will require authorization from your Department Supervisor and a University Vice President or the Dean of your department.

Please complete the Cellular Device Request form and submit to the Telecommunications Department via email at or fax to 607-777-4000.

Our primary carrier is AT&T Mobility; however, Verizon Wireless is available to those who live in areas where AT&T Mobility has no coverage. Cell devices may be viewed online at AT&T Mobility or Verizon Wireless . Once you select a device, email us at for availability and pricing.

As of April 1, 2015, the bundled rate for a smartphone is $50/month. The domestic plan includes 400 shared minutes, unlimited data and unlimited text messaging. International plans are available upon request. Please contact our office for rates.
