International Phone Calls
Phone Calls & Faxes
Dial 9 (off campus number) - 011 (for dialing outside of the U.S.) - country code - city code - local phone number
If you receive a phone number from abroad which doesn't already include the country and city codes, it may include a zero as the first number. In this case, you generally need to drop the initial zero.
In other cases, you may need to add numbers. Example: Placing a call to Mexico City
8 - 011 - 52 (country code) - 55 (city code) - 5 - 278-2254 (local number)
In Mexico City, the local number is 7 digits long. However, when calling that number from outside of Mexico, an additional '5' must be added in front of the local number, making that number 8 digits long.
