Mobile Phone Acquisition and Usage


Information about purchasing mobile phones.


Any new phone requests must be approved by your supervisor and IT. Elon will provide each department with options for shared minutes, new equipment, and upgrade plans. Any phone purchased outside of this process or acquired from a local store will not be paid for by the university.

The requester acknowledges that they are responsible for complying with applicable university guidelines, reimbursing the university for all personal calls and data transfers that exceed the selected rate plan, and returning the phone to the Campus Technology Support Office upon separation/termination from the university. It is against university policy to willfully or with gross negligence cause destruction or damage to University property or the property of fellow employees, students, or visitors in any manner. Monthly statements are subject to audit by supervisors, internal/external auditors.


This information pertains to faculty and staff looking to purchase a cell phone for university use.
