What is Harvard Phone?

Communicating with colleagues at Harvard is about to change.

Technology enhancements have created many ways for people to communicate and collaborate to work more effectively. However, the phone on everyone’s desk has not changed to keep pace with the way we work today.

Harvard Phone is a Harvard IT Strategic Initiative that will transform and modernize the current phone system to improve the way we communicate. The program will:

  • Create a common set of communication and collaboration tools for use across the University that support the way we work today
  • Empower users to update and change phone features anytime, any where through self-service portals
  • Direct calls to reach you where you are, not just at your desk

We are partnering with stakeholders across Harvard to deliver these new services through a multiyear, University wide program. Learn more by attending information sessions or contact us.
