Xpressions: Accessing Your Voicemail

Overview

The university has two voicemail systems, Xpressions and Ring Central. Your voicemail account is set up depending on the phone service you are using for your office phone.

  • If your phone account has been migrated to Ring Central, your voicemail will also be in Ring Central and can be accessed from the Ring Central app.
  • If you are not using Ring Central for your phone service, your voicemail will be in Xpressions.

Xpressions can be accessed in two ways, either by phone or online. Follow the instructions below to sign in to the system.
