Coming Soon: 10-Digit Dialling

Starting June 17, 10-digit dialling comes into effect in Guelph. All local calls placed after this date, including those from on campus, will require callers to dial 10 digits — the area code followed by the phone number.

Already in use in many North American cities, 10-digit local dialling is being introduced because of the heavy demand for new phone numbers and to provide standardized local dialling across neighbouring regions.

Colleges, departments and units are reminded to make the necessary changes, including adding 519 to programmed numbers on all their telecommunications devices and ensuring that security or alarm systems are compatible with 10-digit local dialling.

For those publishing materials that include telephone and/or fax numbers, remember to remove the brackets surrounding the area code because it will no longer be optional.

The University's number should appear as 519 824-4120.
