Summary

Having this phone streamlines communication between coordinators and students as well as plays an integral part in the safe environment we establish for the students.

Information about the use of this cell phone will be in the official T&E Orientation Packet you will receive upon enrollment. All students are required to have a Cellhire phone in order to streamline communications and have an emergency contact number.

Individual participants will be responsible for all additional costs associated with the usage of the T&E cell phone and they must be returned upon completion of the program.

Internet & Wifi

Where is the Connection?

Each homestay and residence hall is equipped with WiFi capabilities. So, if a student brings a laptop, tablet, or smartphone, they will be able to use their devices wherever they live.

The T&E Office has computers for use that are webcam equipped so if you do not bring a laptop, tablet, or Smartphone, these resources are available during Spanish business hours. Many bars and cafes also offer free internet as well.

The Smart Way

For the purposes of communication, we suggest students download the app, Whatsapp, which is a free online texting service that enables them to converse with family and friends at home without needing to use cellular data. If you have an Apple device, iMessage will continue to function even with cellular data turned off.

A Few Additional Things

All students are provided with important contact information (addresses and phone numbers) for local authorities as well as local T&E staff who are available 24 hours, 7 days a week.

T&E has an emergency protocol in place, as well as information on safety and medical situations in a different area of the website. Be sure to visit all the pages for more detailed information.
