Telephone Services for Faculty and Staff

Most of the LMU phones use the Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology to let you use the Internet to make and receive telephone calls. We are using VoIP and unified communications to provide stronger security and service quality. Unified communications systems offer more features and benefits, such as faxes, e-mail, and voicemail are all delivered to a single inbox.

  • How many telephone extensions? - LMU campus telephone numbers have one of three prefixes: 338, 258, or 568. Check the LMU or LLS directories.

    How do I call someone on-campus? Dial the 5-digit extension, which is the last five digits of someone's phone number (e.g. for 310- 338-7777, dial 87777).

    How do I call someone off-campus? Dialing 9, 1, followed by the area code and phone number. To dial an international number, dial 9, 011, country code, phone number. NOTE: Not all phones have the capability to dial international numbers.

    How do I change the ringer volume? Pressing the volume button, the minus (-) side to lower the volume, or the plus (+) side to raise the volume.

    How do I set up my new voicemail? Press the messages button slightly below and to the right of the screen. You will be prompted to enter your password. Enter 2468 followed by the pound (#) sign. The system will then talk you through changing your password and recording greetings.

    What password can I use for voicemail? For security reasons, you will be prompted to enter your password followed by the pound (#) sign. Passwords cannot be easy to guess or the system will not allow them. Passwords that will not work: 12345, your extension, 1111, 2222, 4567. Passwords that will work: a variation of your extension, 2468, 1357, 173, 25835. The password can be between 3 and 6 characters long.

    How do I listen to my voicemail message on my computer? The voicemail message is delivered to your Outlook Inbox as an attachment. Simply double click on the attachment and the WAV file will play using the default player installed on your computer.

    Do not use filters or rules to move your voice messages in Outlook to a separate folder. This will disable the phone from alerting you that you have new messages. The messages must be in your Inbox main folder for your phone to alert you properly. You also need to delete these messages that you no longer need. They will NOT automatically delete like our previous phone system. Voicemails count towards your email quota. Archive or save emails/attachments to another location, such as LMU Box.

    How do I check my voicemail messages from an off-campus phone? Dial 310-338-4500. When the system answers, press the star (*) key. The system will then ask you to enter your mailbox ID which is your 5-digit extension followed by the pound (#) sign. Then enter your password followed by the pound sign (#). From another campus phone, not yours, follow the same instructions but start with x84500 instead of 310-338-4500.

    How do I see what calls I've missed or placed? Press the directories button and select from your Missed Calls, Received Calls, and Placed Calls.
