Cable FAQs

I am staying on campus for Summer. May I keep my cable box? 

Yes. If you currently have an XFINITY cable box checked out to you under your name and are staying on campus for the summer, you are able to keep it with you. Simply pack up your box, cable, and remote and move them with the rest of your belongings to your summer housing. In the Fall, you’ll be able to use them in your Fall housing as well. If your cable box does not work in your new campus location, you may need to contact XFINITY so that they can update your account information.
