What is Xfinity on Campus?

Emerson College, partnered with Comcast, offers full-time, on-campus students Xfinity on Campus as a way to stream their favorite TV shows, live sports, or movies right in the comfort of the dorms. 

To access live TV and on-demand content through Xfinity on Campus, you must be connected to the Emerson Network (either ECWireless or Eduroam) and be a full-time student living in one of the Residence Halls.

NOTE: Students at the Emerson LA campus will not have access to Xfinity on Campus.
