On campus, laboratories, school offices and dormitories are connected with four-digit phone numbers. From the outside, they can be called with the area code of 042 and prefix 350 or 351. You can receive domestic and international calls with any telephone on the campus, but sometimes they are locked and only outgoing calls can be made. To make calls from dormitories, it is necessary to purchase pre-paid phone cards.
