Using the Ten-Digit Dialing System

All local calls placed from 293 prefix numbers at WVU should now include 10 digits (304 area code + seven-digit phone number). Those who forget and dial only seven digits will still be connected until Aug. 10.

The 10-digit dialing requirement is a response to the West Virginia Public Service Commission approval of a new 681 area code assigned to new phone numbers in West Virginia starting next year. At that time, new numbers may be assigned a 681 or 304 area code. Campus calls will remain 3-xxxx. Long-distance calls will continue to require 8 + area code + seven-digit number + TID.

Please refer to Dialing Instructions to determine which prefixes are considered local calls from the 293 prefix.
