TV for Students


We have two types of TV service available for students depending on where you live. Both services are provided by Spectrum, and both are provided at no cost to students.

Residence Halls and select College Houses

Streaming TV service is available in all residence halls and college houses that are on the SNC WiFi network. Our "Internet Access/WiFi" article includes a map showing which houses are on the SNC WiFi network.

More details about our TV service are provided in the following article:

All Other College Houses

For houses that are not on the SNC network, cable TV service is a standard home-type service provided directly by Spectrum. Each housing unit is equipped with a digital adapter, which allows most any modern digital TV to receive channels using the provided box. For the best picture quality, we recommend a modern TV with an HDMI port.

Support for any issues with channels or reception in these college houses is provided by Spectrum. If you need assistance, please contact Spectrum directly.

To connect: Connect an HDMI cable (not provided) from the provided digital adapter to your TV. Switch the input source on your TV to the HDMI input. Use the remote for the digital adapter to select channels.

Future Plans

We're working on plans to make SpectrumU available in most college houses by fall of 2020.

Cable TV

The cable TV service that was available in the residence halls prior to Fall of 2019 is no longer available.
