UVF provides telephone service in each residence hall as part of the student service fee. Telephone service is provided as follows:

  • Each living space is equipped with a phone jack that can be activated to allow on campus, emergency, local, and toll-free calling. Contact the Help Desk at support@valleyforge.edu for assistance.
