Student Housing


All Residence Hall rooms have at least two connections for wired network connectivity. Wireless is also available.

Upon connecting to the network for the 1st time, all devices must be registered with FortiNAC. Simply connect your device to the network and launch a web browser and follow the on-screen directions to accomplish this.

Cable Television

Cable television service is provided for every room in student housing and various academic spaces throughout the campus.

All televisions on campus must contain a QAM 256 digital tuner to receive the channels. Older analog televisions are no longer compatible with the University's cable TV system. Most televisions today are digital/QAM compliant, however less expensive or budget televisions may not be. To find out if your television has a QAM tuner, please check the specifications in your owner's manual, or visit the manufacturer's website.

Televisions that, depending on model, may be missing the QAM tuner:

  • Apex
  • Dynex
  • Element
  • Haier
  • Seiki
  • Sylvania

If you are choosing one of these brands, please verify that the model has a QAM 256 tuner. Please be advised that less expensive TVs sometimes come with a lower quality QAM tuner that may be unable to tune all of the channels.

Students must bring an RG6 Coaxial Cable with them if they plan on hooking up their TV to the campus cable system.

Computer Labs

Residence Hall labs are accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week during school terms. The labs are available for residents and their guests with a valid ID. Students access the computer labs with their room keys. Each lab has a laser printer, but students must usually supply their own paper. University computer use policies must be followed while using the California University of Pennsylvania computer network.
