You can receive cell phone plan discounts—ranging from 10 percent to 21 percent—if you are a student or employee at the UW or one of its affiliated organizations. UW-IT negotiated these discounts with AT&T and T-Mobile; inquire directly with them. In addition, cell phone services charged to a UW ProCard for department use can also take advantage of these and other savings, described on the UW’s Cell Phone Service page. Contact T-Mobile about additional discounts on new iPads and iPhones for UW paid accounts.

A more reliable and secure UW teleconferencing service for subscribers goes live June 19, continuing to provide on-demand conference calls for up to 30 participants. This new version of the Meet-Me Conferencing service uses a new, single conference number (206-616-CONF), with each on-demand conference account having a distinct passcode, which helps with security and system administration. The current monthly rate for this service, provided through UW-IT, will remain the same. Get details.
