The College provides telephones for many staff members to use in the course of their work.

While phones are intended for business use, occasional use of Swarthmore business telephones for local personal calls can generally be accommodated. Be sure you know what the expectations are in your department. Excessive use of telephones for personal local calls may be grounds for disciplinary action.

Making unauthorized long-distance calls is prohibited and may result in disciplinary action.
