Long Distance

Authorization Code

Upon admittance to Gustavus, each student may request a personal and confidential, seven digit authorization code for long distance calls placed from campus. A student retains the same authorization code while he/she has an active status, usually four years. The code will work from any student phone. Each student is billed for all calls made with his/her authorization code. Calls made from the student’s residence using his/her authorization code are his/her responsibility. Each student is responsible for the security of his/her authorization code. The authorization code should be kept confidential. A lost authorization code should be reported immediately to the Telecommunications Department. Any student misusing an authorization code will be fined $100.00 and may be subject to further disciplinary action.


Your monthly telephone bill can be retrieved on-line around the first of each month. You will be notified through e-mail when it is available for viewing. Access is via URL: https://telecom-server.gac.edu. To log into this web page, you will enter an Account ID and password. The Account ID is your student number, using the first zero plus 6 digits. The password is your long distance authorization code.

Upon successfully logging into the web page, you will see your CURRENT account information as well as the details of any calls made in the current month. You may examine your recent bill(s) also by clicking on the upper left most button (which will initially show the phrase “Current Period”) and then selecting the appropriate month.

All bills are due on the 20th of each month and can be paid in person or by using the drop box (Campus Mail) at the Post Office . Comments and questions can be directed through the web page or send e-mail to Becky at bbarnes@gustavus.edu or call the office at x7025. We are in the lower level of Olin Hall, Room 027.

Do not send cash payment through campus mail.
