Each room is equipped with one high-speed data jack (orange) per person or a WiFi access point with wired data jacks. A wireless network is also available for convenience. Information Services (IS) recommends that residents use the wired network as the primary network connection for optimal performance and security.
DePaul provides each resident of the Lincoln Park Campus a streaming TV account through Philo. This service provides live streaming TV for 60+ channels, cloud DVR to record shows and programs, and can be accessed anywhere on- or off-campus. This account will remain active while living in a Lincoln Park Campus residence hall space and will be deactivated upon moving out. (Please note, for residents of traditional-style halls, the Philo account is deactivated during the winter break closure but will be reinstated upon return to campus in January. Apartment residents are not affected.)
Residents may access Philo using their phone, computer, or a streaming device such as Amazon Fire TV, Roku, etc. Residents can register streaming devices on the DePaul network by navigating to go.depaul.edu/netdevices.
Wired cable TV service, which includes local channels and sports programming, is provided in community lounges. Traditional wired cable TV service is not provided in residents' rooms or apartments, as we now offer Philo Streaming TV to all residents.
