How to connect your television

You will need the following:

  • Cable ready television with a QAM tuner
  • Manufacturer's instructions for the television
  • A 3-10 foot coaxial cable
Step 1
Find the cable television connection in your room. It will be in a white or stainless steel faceplate. There may be old, inactive cable jacks in the room too. Please don't try to use them.
Step 2
Connect one side of your coaxial cable to the connection on the wall.
Step 3
Connect the other side of the coaxial cable to the back of your television.
Step 4
  • Turn your television on.

  • Enter the television menu using the menu button on your remote.

  • In the settings, set it for "cable" rather than "antenna" or "terrestrial."

  • Check to see if there is a setting for digital vs. analog. If there is, make sure it is set to digital. (This setting may also be called QAM).

  • Once this is done, have your TV automatically scan for channels.

NOTE: If you do not know how to accomplish any of these steps, please refer to your owner's manual. If you do not have one, check the model number of your TV (usually located on a sticker in the back) and find the appropriate manual.

WiFi Access

RowanWiFi and Ethernet connections are available in your room and throughout campus.

The first time you connect your computer, laptop, tablet, or phone to RowanWifi, you will be re-directed to a login page where you will enter your Rowan username and password. This authentication will keep you connected to RowanWiFi for 90 days before asking you to re-authenticate. Visit go.rowan.edu/wifi for detailed instructions on connecting your computer, mobile device, gaming system or other smart devices.

To connect devices such as Smart TVs, gaming consoles, Roku/FireTV etc, Alexa, or any device that cannot be re-directed to a login page, on a separate computer or moble device you will go to rowan.edu/device to register. You will need to know the MAC address for the device you are trying to connect to the Rowan WiFi. Here is a link that will walk you through the steps to register these types of devices.
