How do I access my voicemail mailbox to listen to messages?

Modified on Fri, 06 Jul 2018 at 10:02 AM

To access your voicemail mailbox from an on-campus phone:


Dial 2222.  Follow the prompts listed below.

To access your voicemail mailbox from off-campus phones:


Dial 617-868-9600.  When you reach the greeting, you can dial 2222 at any time.   Follow the prompts listed below.




When you hear the voicemail mailbox recording begin, follow the prompts, which will be:


"To enter your mail box, press pound (#). 

"Please enter your mailbox number." (your four-digit extension)

"Please enter your security code." (the security code you set up)

At this point, you may use the dial pad to access any of the available functions.

Note: If you are using your own on-campus phone, and the Message Waiting light is flashing red, you bypass having to enter your mailbox number to log into your voicemail.

1. Press the Message Waiting button. 

2. Enter your security code at the "Please enter your security code" prompt.
