The Brown University Switchboard Operators answer Brown's main telephone number, (401) 863-1000 (or “0”) during normal business hours. The operators connect callers to the appropriate person or department, answer general questions and provide information on Campus events.
Telephone service is available throughout Brown University. The main telephone system provides on-campus service with standard features such as call hold, transfer, waiting, forwarding, conference calling, last number redial, voice mail, and music on hold.
PASS Computer Training classes are offered during the academic year and include topics such as Microsoft Office, web publishing, graphics, and database software. Most classes are short (1 to 2 hours) and provide a general introduction to the software. Classes are led by undergraduate trainers.
This service provides the local Brown community with a tool to maintain current versions of software and electronic objects needed in the support of home grown applications.
