Digital cable television services are automatically provided to your Northwood apartment. No analog channels are available. A digital TV that is cable ready or a TV or other device with a digital tuner is required to receive all channels of the UMTV cable service.
If you're having trouble with your cable service, students in residence halls and Northwood Community Apartments should call 734-764-HELP or email 4HELP@umich.edu.
Although the vast majority of our residents use cellular phone services for their local and long-distance calling needs, ITS Networking and Telecommunnications provides several levels of telephone services. For details on what these services include and how to use them, visit the ITS Northwood Net Telephone website. You will need to bring your own handset.
ITS also provides Northwood Net Service for residents of the Northwood Community Apartments (Northwood IV and V) and Undergraduate Housing (Northwood I, II, and III). This service uses DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) technology via a CISCO Cable Modem. It is "always on," uses the standard Internet Protocol (IP), and can support various computer platforms (IBM-compatible PC, Macintosh, Unix, etc.) via Ethernet.
Basement Storage and Laundry Facilities
In Northwood IV and V basements are provided for storage and laundry purposes. Because flooding or wetness may occur in basements, we recommend that plastic bins be used for storage rather than cardboard boxes.
Townhouses are equipped with a rental washer and dryer for resident use. If this equipment needs repair, please contact WASH at 1-800-342-5932 or visit their website. If you choose, you may also use the coin-operated laundry facilities located in Northwood I, II or III.
