All incoming calls will appear to come from a single University extension, this will help you identify which calls are being forwarded from your desk phone.
Outgoing calls using your University extension are not possible. If you use your home or mobile to call you may wish to use 141 to hide your number if you prefer.
You can use Microsoft Teams to call other University staff.
