New eight-digit-only Centrex phone service dialing at University Park | Penn State University
Beginning Feb. 1, five-digit dialing will no longer be supported for Centrex phones at Penn State University Park. As a result, students, faculty and staff members who use Centrex phone services — typically used for some fax machines and residence hall courtesy phones — will need to dial "8" plus a seven-digit phone number for calls and faxes to other University Park numbers and within the 814 area code.
