Phone

Contact the Babson Telecommunications Office at 781-239-4357 or support@babson.edu​ with questions about phone service in your room or to report a problem. The majority of residents do not utilize the phone lines in their rooms.

TV Cable/Comcast

Your room is cable-ready and a Comcast cable box is located in each room/apartment—all you need to bring is your TV. Should you need technical assistance, call Comcast at 1-855-638-2855. Please be sure to have the serial number of your cable box available when calling.

If you would like more information about your cable service, or would like to upgrade your current services, please visit the Comcast website to view available options. Please use the 02457 zip code when utilizing the Comcast site. Comcast will be on campus to provide Babson students the chance to upgrade to digital cable service. Self-install kits will be available for instant installations. ​​

Students who purchase upgraded Comcast cable service are responsible for returning the cable box to Comcast upon their departure from the residence hall. Babson College assumes no liability or responsibility for service charges for additional services contracted for by individual students. Students are responsible for all additional services transactions as contracted with Comcast, including cable box returns at the conclusion of the academic year.

All questions pertaining to the return of an upgraded Comcast cable box should be directed to Comcast.

​Off-Campus Storage Options 

Babson College does not offer storage on campus. New England Student Services offers short-term storage and shipping services.

Information about their services, as well as pickup and delivery dates, can be found on the New England Student Services website.
