Verizon Wireless - University Departments

Originally Posted in 2010

The University of Pittsburgh Purchasing Department and CSSD are pleased to announce a new agreement with Verizon Wireless for cellular services and equipment. The new agreement with Verizon features Shared cellular plans, which will permit the University to consolidate exiting University owned Verizon Wireless corporate liable cellular plans under one of several Verizon Shared plans, resulting in significant annual savings for the University. 

Starting in October 2010, CSSD will begin a transparent migration of the existing University-paid Verizon call plans to a revised portfolio of Verizon Shared plans and new discount structures.  CSSD will notify the business managers in each responsibility center of the devices that will be affected from the adoption of the

shared plans. 

Your existing Verizon cell-phone numbers, your present device, and your provider of choice will remain the same.

An FAQ has been established, which should address any questions or concerns in this regard.  Please visit:

The new Verizon agreement provides for increased discount of 20% on monthly access plans over $35 for both University departments and employee subscribers. The agreement also provides equipment discounts and a 25% discount on accessories when purchasing from the Verizon Wireless/University of Pittsburgh Web site.

Verizon Wireless retail stores currently DO NOT support the discount program.

University departments should follow the instructions listed on the Computing Services and Systems Development Telecommunications Website
