UniCom at IU Southeast

What is UniCom?

UniCom is IU’s term for unified communications, a service that uses Microsoft Lync to bring voice, video, and data together in a unified desktop communication system, providing instant messaging (IM), telephony, email, desktop sharing, and audio/video conferencing.

UniCom offers many advantages over traditional telephones. By tying into your desktop computer, many services are now available that can aid office efficiency and improve communications across campuses.

  • Simple 10-digit dialing
  • No long distance charges between IU campuses
  • Long distance authorization codes are now needed only on non-IU calls
  • Instant messaging between Lync users
  • Video calling from your desk to other Lync users (webcam required)
  • Join video conferences from your desk
  • Desktop sharing
  • Integration with mobile devices

Voice Mail Attendant for Adjunct Faculty

For the convenience of adjunct faculty members and their students, UITS offers an automated voice mail attendant. It provides a way to leave voice messages intended for faculty who do not have a personal office phone on campus.

How it works:

When callers dial the special adjunct voice number, (812) 941-2122, they are prompted by the auto attendant to state the name of the faculty member they are calling. The auto attendant will ask them to leave a voice mail message, which is then forwarded to that faculty member’s email. The adjunct faculty member receives an email with an audio attachment that may be played back on their smart phone, tablet, or computer.

To take advantage of the voice mail attendant, adjunct faculty need only to verify that their email address is correct in the Personal Information section in OneStart, and check their email periodically for messages. The auto attendant does the rest.

For questions or concerns about this service, please contact the Support Center at (812) 941-2447 or
