Next, let’s look at why you might need a 203 area code.

Where is area code 203?

The 203 area code is located in southwestern Connecticut, which is in the Eastern time zone. 203 serves Bridgeport, New Haven, Stamford, Waterbury, and Norwalk.

The 203 area code was created in 1947. It was split in 1995 to update some of the phone numbers to area code 860. In 2009, area code 475 was created and is now an overlay to 203, serving the same area.
