Pager Services

Photo Example

UTMB offers a variety of paging devices supported by the UTMB pager network. Many coverage area options and paging plans are also available for selection. To make use of the existing UTMB Pager Network supported by UTMB, all devices must be leased through the Information Services Pager and Cellular Services area. Pager devices are automatically direct billed monthly to the departments or through tuition (for students). To obtain a UTMB pager, you must complete a Pager Services Form.
