FAU Smartphones and Cell Phones

Smartphones & Cell Phones

Florida Atlantic University employees (faculty and staff) are eligible for a department-owned mobile communication device or a stipend to offset the cost of a personally owned mobile communication device. This telecommunications device is used to conduct University business and to carry out critical job functions and/or other University responsibilities.

How Do I Request the Service?

In order to provide the most comprehensive cellular phone service and superior coverage across the campus, the University has established contracts with two preferred carriers, AT&T Wireless and Verizon Wireless. With approval of the appropriate dean, or vice president, employees may receive a department-owned mobile communication device or stipend to offset the cost of a personally owned mobile communication device.
