Payless Phones for Students
Payless phones are free phones for local calls and are intended as courtesy phones for students to call for a ride home. The phones have a three-minute limit, with an announcement made 30 seconds before the call ends.

Two payless phones are installed on the Napier Avenue Campus: one outside the One-Stop area, and one at the front entrance near the road. The payless phone at the South Haven Campus is located by the vending machines on the first floor.

There are speed dial numbers configured into the phones for campus security, Dial-A-Ride, the IT helpdesk, and the College directory. At the remote campuses in areas where Dial-A-Ride does not have service, a public transit number such as a local cab company is programmed.

Call the IT helpdesk at (269) 927-8189 to report any problems with the phones.
