How to Make Long Distance Calls

Note: effective January 5, 2015, most phones on campus will not require an authorization code for calls to numbers within the U.S. (local to UCSD La Jolla Campus and domestic phone numbers). International calls will still require an authorization code.

If you charge calls to more than one index, you will need an authorization code for each index.
