WCSU is happy to announce that it now has HBO GO available to students living on campus. (As you recall, we added Showtime in the fall). To gain access to the new service, please do the following:
- Go to www.hbogo.com
- Select Sign in from the top right corner.
- Scroll down until you find Western Connecticut State U in the drop down menu and select this option. (Colleges/Universities are listed at the bottom of the All Providers list.)
- Please use your WCSU credentials (username and password) to log into the site. The first time you log in, you will be asked to register an HBO GO account.
* Please note: Connected TV devices such as Roku, Apple TV, PlayStation and XBOX consoles must be connected to the on-campus internet for HBO GO.
Returning Students - the room selection processfor the Fall 2018 semester has begun. If you wish to live on campus for the 2018-19 school year, you must pay your housing deposit ($250, non-refundable) by MARCH 20th in order to participate in room selection for the fall. No one who has not paid a room deposit will be permitted to select a room. Payments can be made online via the EZPay portal, or in person at the CASHIERS office in Old Main.
Check your email and look for signs in the residence halls for information about the rest of the process.
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.
