Residence Hall CATV (Cable Television)

CATV is available in all of our residence halls. SU offers approximately 90 channels for your viewing pleasure. Listed below is our lineup.

There is only one cable outlet per room. We provide the outlet; you must provide the coaxial cable to connect from the outlet to your television. The cost of cable services is included in your housing fee.

Note: SU does not provide cable service to students living in University Park Apartments. Students living in University Park having trouble with their cable service should report the issue to University Park Management.

Television Requirements

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.

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 Cable and not Air/Antenna/TV. 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. Once this is complete, you should be able to view all the channels listed below. If you are only seeing six or seven channels, please go through Auto Channel Search and select CABLE and try again.
