The University heating season is October 15th - April 15th. Currently, the HVAC team is working behind the scenes to prepare all the equipment for the changeover from cooling to heating. Naturally, at this time of the year, there are many cool (or even cold) days that occur before the heat comes on.
You'll be much warmer as they get ready to put the heating system on if you keep your windows closed. You may also want to keep an extra blanket handy and layer your clothes while we're in this transition period. In a few days, the heat will be on, and things will be toasty and warm.
There is a 2-week room freeze to change rooms. Students who think they may want to change rooms should speak to their Resident Director (RD) right away so they know you are interested in making a change.
Starting on September 9th, students who wish to move will be able to work with their RDs to find available space. PLEASE BE AWARE that there may not be space available for you to move.
Room changes will be permitted until October 25th.
Cable TV information:
For a new list of the updated cable channels, please click on this link.
Your digital television must have a QAM tuner (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) to work with the school’s cable service. The QAM tuner allows your TV to receive high definition cable programming without a cable set top box. Unfortunately, some less expensive TVs come with a low quality QAM tuner that may not be able to pick up all the digital channels. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV.
A NTSC (National Television System Committee) tuner is not compatible. This TV will require a digital-to-analog converter box to view television signals. (See information below to purchase a converter).
An ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) tuner can receive digital signals but is not compatible with the school’s cable system.
Here is a link to an informal compatibility reference for newer devices. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV.
