The main University telephone number is 740-368-2000. All campus offices and residence hall rooms have direct-dial numbers.

  • Callers may dial 740-368-plus your extension number to reach you without going through a University operator.
  • The central switchboard is open from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday - Friday only.
