Each residence hall room is served by the Mary Baldwin Television system. The cost of cable television programming is included in your comprehensive student fees. You will not receive a bill for cable television service. Everyone gets the same channel lineup. Extra channels are not available. Problems with television reception should be referred to the OIT Help Desk at 887-7075.
The cable television system currently has over 50 channels. Channel 2 is a campus bulletin board called Squirrel Vision and carries information on student activities and programming. Channel 21, MBU-TV, has a variety of student-produced programs and carries Campus Cinema movies.
If you have a cable ready TV, you may connect your TV directly to the cable outlet in the wall with a coaxial cable. Mary Baldwin does not provide these cables, but they are available at local stores and online. Replace your cable is the ends are damaged. That will ensure better picture quality.
To report cable problems, please call OIT during regular business hours at 540-887-7075 or visit our Online Help Desk Form to enter and automated work order request.
If a service call is necessary, an OIT technician will visit the residence hall room on an appointment basis. The student requesting help MUST be in the room during the service call.
There is no charge for routine repairs. However, if the student or an authorized person is not there for a scheduled service call, a fee may be charged for the missed appointment.
