Departmental Costs

Campus entities that utilize UWW Cable Service for video programming pay on a per tap basis.  That means each cable jack that is used is billed for.

For the 2017-2018 fiscal year, the cost was $228.

For the 2018-2019 fiscal year, the cost was $264.

For the 2019-2020 fiscal year, the cost will be $264.

For the 2020-2021 fiscal year, the cost will likely be $132 if you move to SpectrumU.

For the 2020-2021 fiscal year, the cost will be $0 if you only use our coax cable system.

The existing cable system system will continue with a limited lineup of ABC/NBC/CBS/FOX/PBS/CW, subchannels of those major networks, Cheddar Media(111.1), UWWTV(100.1), UWWTVCS(101.1) and University Housing digital sign channels. Your fees are used to maintain the cable infrastructure across campus and pay video subscription fees.

Additional costs are absorbed by University Housing.  Your departmental subscription to service does not entitle you to our help in maintaining your televisions.  That is the responsibility of each individual department.  If we are asked to respond to an issue, and the problem originates with your device, you may incur additional chargebacks.

Cable is not considered a mission-critical service and will be serviced on a staff availability basis. Campus departments are not required to use services provided by University Housing Technology for video programming.
