Conference Calling Options
The Voice Services department of Information Technology Services offers two options for conferencing calling at Boston College:
- Meet Me Conference Bridges (3 units available - reservations should be made a minimum of 3 business days prior to the intended call.)
- Conference Quality speakerphones (several units available - reservations should be made a minimum of 5 business days prior to the intended call.)
Members of the BC community are welcome to utilize either of these services by calling the reservation line at 617-552-1820 (2-1820 from on-campus). This line is monitored by our staff and messages will be returned promptly. If insufficient notice is given, scheduling can not be guaranteed.
Conference bridges reservations should be made a minimum of 3 business days prior to the intended call.
Of the three conference bridge numbers available for use, two can host up to 10 callers, while one can host up to 30 callers. Toll free options are available with one of the 10 port bridges and the 30 port bridge. If a toll free number is needed for the intended call, be sure to inform the staff member scheduling the call.
Dialing instructions for utilizing a conference bridge can be provided upon scheduling. It is recommended that at least one participant should be calling from a BC campus phone, though this is not required.
Voice Services reserves the right to change the conference bridge numbers at any given time due to abuse. Changes will be made on a routine basis.
Speakerphone reservations should be made a minimum of 5 business days prior to the intended call.
Speakerphones are available for temporary use in administrative offices throughout the university. If an analog telephone line is not available for use, a temporary line will be installed by a telecommunications technician. If a user is not familiar with this information, a technician or Technology Consultant can confirm the availability. The speakerphone will be installed just prior to the scheduled event and will be retrieved as soon as possible thereafter.
Questions on either service can be directed to 617-552-1820 (2-1820 from on-campus).
