Pager Services

Service Description

UW-IT retired the Pager support service (provided by the UW-IT Enterprise Service Desk) on December 31, 2014. The decision was reached through a partnership with and recommendation by the IT Service Management Board, one of three University-wide information technology (IT) governance boards that provide advice on IT strategy, services and priorities. This change is in keeping with UW-IT’s mission to provide technology services in line with the University’s priorities.

Service Options

UW-IT recommends the use of smart phones in place of pagers both because of their more extensive functionality and because they receive communication via both Wi-Fi systems as well as standard cellular connections.  Smart phone services can be arranged by departmental administrators.


The company known until recently as USA Mobility has changed its name to Spok, and continues to be a provider for UW pagers. Your department can contract with Spok directly.


If you are associated with UWMC, contact Teleservices at 206 598 6970 or email for all of your pager needs.

Please send email to if you have any other questions.
