MICUA continued its consortium arrangement with Comcast to provide students living on campus with streaming video and on demand services to laptops, tablets, and smartphones. The consortium is structured in a way to benefit all MICUA members. Each time an additional member utilizes the consortium, the price for existing users is reduced.
