Computer Services

Television

In an effort to keep up with changing student needs, beginning in Fall 2021, Penn College will no longer offer a cable television package to on-campus residents. This decision was made after surveying students' actual usage rates of the previous television service.

The money budgeted for this service will be put toward further improvement of our internet service and Wi-Fi capabilities in the residence halls, ensuring that resident students will continue to have quality streaming capabilities through the device of their choosing.  In light of this, students who whish to bring a television will need a smart TV or will need to purchase an appropriate devise to allow for streaming.

If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation, or have questions about the physical access provided, contact Disability and Access Resources at ext. 7803 in advance of your participation or visit.

Laundry Facilities

Laundry facilities are provided in each complex for residents to use. The cost of operating the machines has been included in the cost of housing so that residents may use the machines without needing to insert quarters or slide a card. All of the washing machines are front loading washing machines and require that High Efficiency (HE) detergent be used.
