In some limited cases, Trinity College will provide a cellular telephone for an employee to use. Since this is an expensive service, only a small minority of employees have one. They are generally only used in cases where the employee is on-call after hours, is a maintenance worker who moves about the campus, or travels extensively on college business.
Employees who are required to carry a college phone are permitted to use it sparingly for personal calls.
Cellular telephones belonging to Trinity College should not be used to make international calls (unless a phone card is used) since the rates are very unfavorable.
