Unlike many universities, Pace provides each resident student with their own phone. You Do NOT need to bring your own. In fact, non-Pace phones will not work on the Pace telecommunications network. The following telephone services are included in the cost of your room:
-One Touch dialing for Pace Security
-Free local calls (see list below)
-Free campus to campus calls (NYC, Pleasantville, Briarcliff and White Plains)
-Free calls to all Pace administrative offices
Long distance calls are NOT included in the cost of your room and each student must set up their own long distance service.
Signing Up for Service
Pace has partnered with PAETEC Communicationsand has used the purchasing power of the entire student population to negotiate competitive rates. This collective pooling of resources allows Pace to offer significant savings over using a calling card or calling collect.
In order to take advantage of these rates you must create an account with PAETEC. You may sign up for your account on-line by clicking here, or you may call PAETEC at 1-800-962-4772. After you have signed up for an account, PAETEC will mail you a Personal Billing Number (PBN). You will need this number every time you make a long distance call from your residence hall room.
Please note: PAETEC is the only long distance provider for Pace University’s Westchester campuses.
