Meeting Communications Needs in Campus Dorms

For the past decade, campuses in the United States have been offering comprehensive communications services in campus dorms that include high speed Internet, cable television, and telephone services (local line, long distance, and voice mail in some cases). With students migrating to other forms of personal communications such as cell phones and text messaging, campuses are reevaluating the need for telephone lines in the dorms. This panel will discuss the implementations at both Notre Dame and Texas A&M University. Included in the discussion will be student opinion polls, wireless alternatives, and E911 and other safety considerations.
