Faculty and Staff are provided campus voicemail service. CIS provides maintenance, password resets and feature modifications for the voice mail service.  

While many faculty and staff have opted to use the Message Waiting Indicator (MWI) to determine whether or not a voicemail message has been left, it is unfortunately a function that is no longer supported by our vendor in the current phone system environment.  With that in mind, the best alternative to ensure you're receiving your voicemail messages and regularly checking for them is to set up Unified Messaging for Voicemail.  This will cause voicemail messages left on your line to be delivered as email messages in your SPU account.  The messages may be listened to on either your computer or via the phone.  Alternatively, you can regularly check your voicemail box by dialing in, without using the MWI.

If you are setting up your voicemail for the first time or would like to listen to voicemail messages on your phone, follow the steps below to access your voicemail box.
