  • Cable & Internet Service

    Digital Cable and DSL Internet Service is provided by Midcontinent Communications. Wireless internet is available in the common area floor and building lounges in each hall. Each room has a DSL router box or ethernet port wall jack. You will need to provide your own ethernet cord or wireless router. Rooms are equipped with digital cable and require a Digital TV Converter Box if you have an older style TV. Converter boxes can be checked out at the Front Desk of your hall. If you have trouble connecting or would like to add services (for a fee), Midcontinent has set up a special number just for MSUM Students, and the answer calls 24/7! Call 1-800-888-1300 from your room; when you hear prompts, press 5 for the MSUM Customer Service care line; enter extension 1234. Visit for self-help guides, online chat support and troubleshooting tips.

    Reminder: only the common areas have wi-fi access; to provide residents with the fastest and most reliable internet, Midcontinent internet is accessible through ethernet connection. Residents are free to purchase their own wireless router if they prefer wi-fi connection within their room.
