ObieSafe COVID-19 Information
Oberlin College has adopted COVID safety guidelines. These will change over time, so we encourage you to become conversant with them by visiting our “ObieSafe” webpage at ObieSafe.
It will also be important to upload your COVID vaccination card or your vaccination intention form by visiting:
Visit the Campus Directory to search for contacts across campus by name, ObieID, department, office, or job title. The directory is comprehensive in that it includes contact information for faculty, staff, and students, and the directory is updated every 24 hours.
Please review the Oberlin College & Conservatory Campus Safety Resources.
Emergency Alert System:
Oberlin College incorporates in its emergency response plan an alert system that uses multiple delivery methods to provide emergency information to students and employees of the college.
Update your contact information and alert preferences so that our alert messages can reach you in an emergency.
The purchase and replacement of computing hardware/software is handled through the department with which you are associated.
Please contact your administrative assistant, your department chair or division director, or your immediate supervisor.
Tech help can be found at the Center for Information Technology:
Your specific office/studio telephone extension # is available from your administrative assistant or point of contact person.
Campus calls are made by dialing a five digit extension. An off-campus call is made by dialing -7- and then the telephone number. Here are two resources for setting up your telephone:
Most calls from Oberlin are long distance. An application form is located HERE for an ACUS code. This number is used when making long distance calls on behalf of the college. The signature of your Division Director/Supervisor is required. Send the completed form to the Telephone Office in the Service Building via email or campus mail.
Should the need for a fax arise the location and telephone number of the fax machine for your use can be retrieved from your administrative assistant or point of contact person.
