Telephones and Televisions

Telephone service in all College-operated housing is provided through the Telecommunications Department. A telephone is provided in each student room. Voice mail will be provided free if students go to the Telecom Office in Laird 6 to sign up for voice mail. Students are issued an authorization code for long distance privileges and receive monthly long distance bills. Questions regarding equipment malfunctions or billing issues should be addressed to the Telecommunications Department located in Laird.

The larger residence halls have televisions and DVD players in the floor lounges and the main lounge. If you decide to bring your own TV, maintenance staff recommend a small set with self-contained antenna or rabbit ears. The installation of outside antennas for TVs and/or radios and the splitting or tapping into any antenna or antenna cable are prohibited. The cost for removal will be billed to the student account. The unauthorized connection to a cable TV signal is a crime and may result in prosecution by the local cable company.


Cable TV is currently available in all the residence hall lounges and houses with the exception of Allen, Geffert, Prentice, and Wilson Houses.
