Using a UCSB Calling Card, a customer can place a telephone call from an off-campus telephone
and have the expense of the call charged to a university or grant account. Calling
cards can also be used with on-campus phones to allocate call charges to specific accounts.
Communications Services has an agreement with Qwest which enables faculty and
staff to use a custom UCSB Calling Card at a rate competitive with other
national calling cards for business calling. You may obtain and use a calling card from any carrier, but only the UCSB
Calling Card will bill to a university account at rates negotiated by
Communications Services also provides customer support for the UCSB Calling
Card. We will work with you to ensure that you have a calling card that works wherever it is
Getting a Calling Card
Note: Once we have processed your calling card order, we will send the card and accompanying passcode and instructions to you via campus mail.
Calling card rates to or from countries outside the US vary from country to country. For details, see UCSB WorldCard Calling Card Rates (pdf).
