Ernestine - The UO Phonetic Operator System
The Phonetic Operator (aka Ernestine) is a system for looking up University of Oregon staff, faculty, and department phone numbers. This system works in conjunction with our staffed operator pool to assist callers in reaching the right person or department.
It's as easy as picking up the phone and asking for the person or department you're looking for; Ernestine will connect the call through.
Ernestine can perform the following searches:
* five digit campus extensions beginning with 6, like 6-0001, may be dialed locally from Eugene as 346-0001 or long distance to Eugene as (541) 346-0001.
More information about campus dialing may be found on the dial plan page.
