Television and Cable

Xfinity on Campus

Each residence hall room and the living rooms and bedrooms in the apartments have outlets/basic cable boxes which connect to the University's television distribution system. A basic and standard cable television line-up (including HiDef) is provided to all rooms, as per the University's contract with Comcast Communications. No direct billing to students is necessary, as CATV charges are included in student fees. Students requiring assistance with a Comcast problem should contact the Residence Life Tech Office at 610-436-2344 ( or University Student Housing at 610-692-7391 (depending on where student lives). Be prepared to leave full name, complete campus address (including suite/apartment number and room), contact telephone number, serial number of cable box in question and a brief description of problem noted.

Students interested in obtaining other services from Comcast, including any Premium channels, DVR, or Cable Modem services, must contract directly with - and be billed monthly by - Comcast Communications. Before making a decision on add-on packages to your room, please check out our new IPTV service at Questions can be addressed to: Residence Life Technology Office at 610-436-2344 or go to for more information.
