Installation, Repair, and Service

Information Technology provides a network of many channels to every residence hall room and apartment. Basic service for cable TV is included with your housing.

Once you have hooked cables to their proper input and output jacks, check the connections to insure that they are not loose or jammed. If you experience noise or other problems, check the inside of your Cable TV Guide Card (available at the Help Desk) for schematics and instructions. If the problem persists, contact the Help Desk at (989) 774-3662.
