# Removing page number from ToC

-

See this FAQ answer. In the simplest case you just use `\thispagestyle{empty}` after `\tableofcontents`. However there are several complications, so see the linked answer.
One problem not discussed in the FAQ is if the table of contents is longer than 1 page. For this situation you can write `\addtocontents{toc}{\protect\thispagestyle{empty}}` somewhere before your first chapter.
I have TOC on 3 pages and if I use `\thispagestyle{empty}` after the `\tableofcontents` only the 3rd page has no page number. Then I add the `\addtocontents{toc}{\protect\thispagestyle{empty}}` in front of the first chapter and I get rid of the page number on the 1st page while page number on the 2nd page remains... –  71GA Sep 4 '13 at 17:17
@71GA in that case I guess you can add also `\addtocontents{toc}{\protect\pagestyle{empty}}` next to the other `\addtocontents{}` –  Lev Bishop Sep 4 '13 at 18:14
