CATV is available in all of our residence halls. SU offers
approximately 90 channels for your viewing
pleasure. Listed below is our lineup.
Please note that there is only one cable outlet per room.
We provide the outlet; you must provide the actual cable to connect
to from the outlet to your television. The cost of cable services
is included in your housing fee. We do not offer premium channels
(i.e. HBO, Showtime, Encore).
The SU cable TV system does not utilize a set top box to receive
channels. Televisions must have a QAM (stands for quadrature amplitude
modulation) tuner in order to receive channels on campus. For
more information on QAM tuners and a list of televisions that
are known to not work with the SU cable system please click here.
Programming Your Television
Please make sure you have properly programmed your
television to receive our cable services. You
must make sure your TV is set to receive Cable TV and not Air or
Antenna. Once you have changed that setting, the next step
is to set the Auto Program on your television. This option is available
somewhere in your menu options. After that, you should be
able to view all the channels listed below.
To report a problem with your cable television, call the campus
switchboard, 410-543-6000 (x36000). Be sure to leave your name, building
