Wi-Fi Calling

About Wi-Fi Calling

Wi-Fi calling lets you talk when cellular coverage is limited or unavailable. Instead of using your carrier's network connection, you make calls through a Wi-Fi network. For the user, it's like any other call and you still use regular phone numbers.

Please note quality can vary depending on proximity to a Wi-Fi access point and/or your mobile device. Also be aware that emergency responders cannot determine your location on 911 calls without your input. During setup, you will input location. Keep this information updated if you change locations.

How to Setup Wi-Fi Calling

Wi-Fi is available in all Campus buildings. Please select the “LUC” Wi-Fi network, connect to it following the instructions for your device located at Using the Network and then register the device at Loyola NetReg - Register Now.

Once connected to Wi-Fi, refer to your specific carrier to learn which devices are compatible, how to set-up Wi-Fi calling, and any charges they may implement. See the table below and click on your carrier’s name here to learn more: AT&TSprintT-Mobile, or Verizon.
