UHI telephone service
The UHI has a private telephone exchange that connects all the partner colleges as though they were all on the one local exchange.
Some staff use telephone conferencing to support remote students off campus or dispersed students within the UHI partnership. The Alcatel telephone system is very sophisticated and provides a range of facilities that make it ideal for telephone multi point conferencing.
