Mobile Phones & Broadband

Newcastle University currently provide mobile telephones from O2, via the PSN framework, which is a specially negotiated deal for the public sector. This ensures that we adhere to the university policies for best value.

 Mobile provision resolves two business needs:

  • Enable you to make and receieve calls anywhere
  • Enable you to send and receive email or view and make calendar changes, when away from your desk.

The handset choices on offer satisfy these needs, and do so in the most cost efficient manner.


Who can have a mobile phone?

The head of your school or service must authorise you to be provided with a mobile telephone or mobile broadband (MiFi).

As part of the ordering process, you must submit an internal purchase requisition which has been co-signed by the head of school or service to authorise your order.


From January 2018, All new connections will be made with O2. These web pages reflect the current Mobile Telephony contract with O2.

For information relating to current handset users with EE, please conatct the telecoms office via Service Desk for further assistance.
