You first have to have service in your room in order for it to work. Unless you really want a traditional land line for whatever reason, you're better off going with a VOIP provider like Magic Jack as Jim Moor mentions or Vonage. Its much cheaper than what a local telco can probably offer.
For instance, with AT&T, the cheapest phone only plan (traditional landline not digital phone service) in my area costs $24.25/month for local calling only.

You could call the Phone Company local to you, and pay for a land line to be installed. Prob $75 install and $25/month
Or instead get a MagicJack (or equiv) and attach to phone line, then you can use a landline style phone on another jack. About $40 to buy and $12/year!
Plus you get messages as emails.
