All calls within the campus are expected to operate normally during the transition, although incoming calls from off campus may receive intermittent error messages. The following temporary numbers are setup for external callers to reach the campus during the transfer.

  • Temporary main line to campus: 714-447-8073 instead of 657-278-2011
  • Temporary Police Department: 714-447-8017 instead of 657-278-2515

Emergency 911 calls from all campus phones, including 'blue' phones, will be operational, but it is recommended that individuals needing this service use a cell phone during the transfer process.

Faculty and staff do not have to do anything to help with the transfer. For more information about the process, call the IT Help Desk at 657-278-7777 or
