- Q: I can't access the service!
- A: XFINITY on Campus is available only to on-campus residents. While some functionality - such as DVR and GO TV channels - is available off-campus, the first time you log in to XFINITY on Campus on your device, you MUST be connected to PennNet/AirPennNet, the University's wired/wireless network.
Q: How many devices can I register?
A: You can register as many devices - desktops, laptops, or mobile devices - as you like. However, you can only stream to 1 device at a time, and only 3 devices can be registered at any given time. If you register a 4th device, XFINITY on Campus will delete the oldest registered device to make room for that 4th device.
For PennNet connection or login issues, contact your ITA.
