English term or phrase: association time
Telephone Calls – We realise that many foreign nationals may be very far from their families and friends. In addition to any calls you pay for, you are allowed to make a maximum of one free ten minute telephone call to your country each month in exchange for one visit.

In addition to your canteen purchases you can buy up to £20 per week phone credits for international phone calls which can be made during association time only. This is to allow you to make regular international calls
