Technology in the Residence Halls
MVCC IS EXCITED TO BE FINALIZING PLANS FOR AN INTERNET UPGRADE FOR FALL 2013 - WATCH FOR UPDATES!
Each room is equipped with a high speed internet connection for each student. These are "wired" connections. However, many students choose to bring their own wireless router for local wireless service. Students may also see Computer Services when they arrive on campus to have the main campus wireless network key inputted into their computer so that they can enjoy wireless service in the library, classrooms, and other campus (non-residence hall) locations.
Each room is equipped with telephone service. A personal phone is necessary. Service includes local and "room to room" telephone service, call waiting, call forwarding, and 3-way calling. Phone numbers are given to students at check-in. There is NO charge to make local calls or to receive calls from long distance, so connecting a landline phone to the room jack even if you have a cell phone is a great back up telephone. Students may choose to use a private phone card or their cell phone for long-distance service. Students may also sign-up for a Northland Communications PIN for long-distance service at check-in or anytime during the semester in the Residence Hall Facilities Office located in Huntington Hall. Voice mail is included with phone service.
Yes, all rooms are cable ready with one cable outlet, which can be split, per room. Students will automatically receive over 50 channels. There is not cost for this basic service. Should students want to sign up for premium services such as pay per view, Digital, DVR, etc., they make contact the cable company personally once they arrive on campus.
