Frequently Asked Questions

Internet, Phone, and TV

Is Hardin House wired for Internet access?

Yes. Every room is equipped with high-speed Internet service that connects directly to The University of Texas network. Internet service is provided through Campus Connect and is included with your contract.

Our entire facility has wireless high-speed Internet throughout. A wireless card in your laptop is all you need to connect to the Internet throughout our building without any plugs!


Does my daughter have to have a phone in her room?

No, a phone in the room is not required as virtually everyone has a cell phone. Basic landline phone service is included in your Hardin House contract, but you would need to provide your own phone.  We must have a phone number on file for each resident.


Is cable television an option?

Yes, and it's free. Every room is wired for cable television. Hardin House provides New Standard Cable Service free of charge, which includes over 70 channels as well as Disney, Turner Classic Movies, ESPN2, Discovery Channel, AMC, Sci-Fi and the History channel. If you are interested in digital programming or additional movie options, you may contact Time Warner to subscribe.

Do we have to bring our own TV?

We have community televisions in every house. The residents that live in The Apartments as well as Grant House are provided with a television free of charge.  Hardin House also offers televisions for rent to all other residents on a first-come, first-served basis. These 19” flat panel HD TVs save you from bringing your own TV, so you have one at home and school! As an added bonus, we rent small room refrigerators, too! We will send information about these rentals with your room assignment packet in May.
