UVa. dumps dorm land-line phones
The University of Virginia has removed about 3,850 land-line telephones from residence halls in a move that will save $500,000 annually.
The removal of the telephones marks the fact that today's students overwhelmingly rely on mobile phones. U.Va. also is upgrading the systems that deliver cellular-phone signals.
The university's chief housing officer, Mark Doherty, says students may request a land-line phone but he doesn't think many will.
Emergency phones in dormitory hallways and residential staff areas still will be available.
