Indiana University

At IU, how can I arrange for a telephone conference, and what options are available?

At Indiana University, telephone conferences allow groups of people in different locations to hold discussions when time, travel, or budget constraints do not allow face-to-face meetings. For general and campus-specific information, including Contact Center contact information, or to schedule your conference call, visit IU Conference Call Services.

The UITS Contact Centers at IU Bloomington and IUPUI offer the following enhanced telephone conference capabilities to all faculty and staff at all IU campuses (with the exception noted below), 24 hours a day, 365 days a year:

  • Meet-me conference

    Callers can participate from any location and do not have to wait for a conference operator to call. Long distance charges (if any) are the responsibility of each caller participating in the conference.

  • Meet-me 800 conference

    A Meet-me 800 conference is identical to a Meet-me conference, except the department initiating the conference call incurs a $0.075-per-minute charge per port for use of the 800 line.

  • Operator-assisted conference

    A conference operator places the calls to each party. Any charges for international calls are billed to an Authorization Code provided by the requesting department.
