You must carry this I.D. at all times while on campus, and it is required in order to make use of University facilities such as libraries, pools, gyms, etc. No temporary I.D. will be issued by the department to replace a lost or forgotten card.

Each faculty and staff member, and each graduate student office has a 5-digit telephone extension. The full phone number is 848-445-2390 ext.XXXXX (the 5 digit extension is listed on the display of the phone in your assigned office). You must keep a record of the date and numbers of any long distance calls you make for bookkeeping purposes. You will receive a copy of the bill each month and be asked to account for your calls. SEE * BELOW FOR INFO ON PHONE CHARGES.
Important: To request an Ambulance or to report Fire - dial 911 from your office phone.
Please note that Visitor and Student phones are restricted to certain types of calls (e.g. Student phones cannot place international calls).

Simply dial the 5-digit extension of the person you are trying to reach, to initiate the call.
Within the University
Dial 2 for New Brunswick (CAC & Douglass) extensions, or dial 5 for Piscataway (Busch & Livingston) extensions, followed by the 5-digit extension of the person you are trying to reach, to initiate the call.
Note: This does not* have the same result as the last example. This will dial 848-445-1318.
Outside the Department
Dial '8' first, then a '1', and then proceed to dial the regular number, including the area code, to initiate the call.
Outside the Country

Note: All office extension can be called directly from any phone by dialing the campus prefix before the 5-digit extension. For Piscataway (Busch & Livingston) extensions, you would dial '848-445-XXXX' and for New Brunswick (CAC & Douglass) extensions, you would dial '848-932-XXXX', with the 'XXXX' representing the last 4 digits of the extension you wish to dial.

Every full-time member of the department, as well as long-term visitors will be provided with a personal user number upon request.
All copies are sorted into one of five categories, which you select at copy time by specifying a billing code. The five categories, along with their respective billing codes are listed below. You must login using your account number, with no password, then input a billing code, for each copy session.
Instructional Copying :
Instructional material is material distributed to students such as notes,
problems, etc., as well as your exams and grade records.
Note:You may also submit the job to our copy center operator, indicating that it is instructional material.
- Administrative Copying : 700002 : Administrative material is any material necessary for Department business, projects, or events.
Grant Copying :
Grant material is any material that you wish to charge to, and is covered by, your grant.
Note:If you do not have a grant, then you must use the 'Personal' billing code instead.
Personal Copying :
Personal material is any material for personal use, and is by far the most widely applicable category.
Note:This category does apply to research material in the event that no grant may be used to cover the copying costs.
- External Copying : 700006 : External material is any material pertaining to paid work for source other than the University, such as a Journal, where the external group paying for your work is covering the cost of the copied matirials.
Transparencies are 15¢ ($0.15) per page.
All charges for non-instruction expenses must be paid by you. Individuals able to charge these expenses to grants are strongly encouraged to do so (make a note that you wish to charge your grant for your expenses on the bottom of the invoice before you return it).
The key Operator (located at the 315 window) is there to run larger jobs. Please allow backlog time. Personal copying should not interfere with business.
Please plan ahead to do your copying and to pick up work.
NOTE: Some journals and other reference materials are not allowed to leave the library. If you need to make a copy, a "Copy Card" is required to operate the library machine. Upon request, Amber Cole in Hill 315, will issue such cards to you. If she is unavailable please ask the staff members in either Hill 310 or Hill 312 for assistance. Each card is presently worth $5 (or a total of 46 copies). If you plan to do a large article, in excess of 46 pages, be sure to request an additional card. Used up cards should be disposed of. Please, do not leave the card in the library copy machine when you are finished. Anyone can use it to make copies. New faculty/eligible students should request an instruction sheet when getting your first card.
For quick snacks, there are soda machines in the lobby and basement and a snack and ice cream machine in the lobby of Hill Center. There are convenience stores in the Campus Centers as well.
