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.
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 and room location and a phone number where you can be reached. Someone will be in touch with you to remedy the situation. If you are trying to contact us afterhours (weekdays after 5 pm, 4:30 pm during the summer or on the weekends) please send an email to email@example.com. When sending the email please remember to include the following: name, location, phone number, window of time when you will be available for a technician to come over, and a detailed description of the problem (channels missing, port broken, etc.) Someone will be in touch with you to remedy the situation.
