Telephone numbers start with the 0461 area code followed by the prefix 28 and the 4-digit extension number. To telephone a number in Rovereto, you will use the 0464 area code and prefix the 4-digit extension number with 80. Dialling a number outside the University telephone system is possible thanks to 3 telephone routes (2 in Trento and 1 in Rovereto), up to a maximum of 90 phone calls at the same time (entry/exit).
