Conference Call Services

Meet Me Conference

Meet Me Conference service allows NIU employees to arrange a conference call with up to thirty parties at a specified time. There are a limited number of Meet Me conference numbers assigned, therefore a Meet Me Conference needs to be prearranged by calling 815-753-8100 or by filling out a work order
At this time, there is no charge for this service.

Arrange for all the conferees to call the number at a prearranged time. As in all conference calls, one caller from our NIU campus system must remain in the conference until all callers are finished for the conference to remain active.

Toll Free Conference

Using a toll free number, callers participate in the call without the worry of a per minute charge. Only the sponsoring department will pay for the call. See Conference Call Service Rates.

This service offers a variety of special features not provided by Meet Me Conference:

  • Announcement of callers joining or leaving the call
  • Private roll call
  • Participant count
  • Call Recording
  • Lock Conference (no new participants can join)

To set up a Toll Free Conference, a work order is required.
