New Style for Phone Numbers, Web Addresses Starts Jan. 1

Effective Jan. 1, SUNY Cortland is implementing changes to the way phone numbers and College Web addresses are written.

In keeping with Associated Press style, a dash will replace the parentheses around the area code in telephone numbers, for example: 607-753-2011.

When writing URLs for SUNY Cortland Web pages, we will no longer include www or www2.

This change does not apply to URLs or Web addresses belonging to other organizations or websites.


  • for the home page
  • for the Admissions Office Web page
  • for the Art and Art History Department Web page

The Communication Guide and the Writing Style Guide offer additional guidance and examples.

Please consult these guides regularly for up-to-date-information on all College communication style matters.

Questions or concerns should be directed to the Publications and Electronic Media Office, or 607-753-2519.
