*** Update, Fall 2017: Spectrum Cable (formerly known as Time Warner Cable) is no longer providing residential cable service to residence hall rooms. Ithaca College is not able to assist students in working with Spectrum to receive cable service. We encourage students to consider streaming services such as Sling TV to meet their viewing needs, as well as cable TV that is in each residence hall and/or community building TV lounge.
