Heritage Apartments

UC Merced partners with Heritage Management to provide new opportunities for continuing students and transfer housing. Students living in our new Heritage community will reside in 2-4 person apartments within the Merced community while maintaining many of the conveniences of on-campus housing. Apartments will be fully furnished (bedroom and living room furniture) and include kitchens.

Apartments are configured as:

  • 1 shared room + 1 bath (2 people)
  • 2 shared rooms + 2 bath (4 people)
  • 1 shared room + 1 private room + 1 bath (3 people)

How do I connect to the Wi-Fi?

Each apartment is equipped with a Comcast router to provide internet service. Trouble connecting? Try the steps below.

Check wireless connectivity:

  • Go into settings (either through mobile device or computer)
  • Select the wireless network labeled on the back of the router
  • Type in the password found on the back of the router
  • Once connected you may be asked to create a new network name and password - please keep it for your records

If you cannot find the same network labeled on the router:

  • Press 3 times and hold down the router reset button with a pen/pencil (small button located on the back of the router)
  • Do not release the router reset button until all of the lights in front have turned off
  • The router may take anywhere from 1 to 2 minutes to fully reset
  • Once all of the white lights have turned back on, try to reconnect

If you can connect but have no internet access:

  • Try the first steps with an alternative device (ex: if you used your phone the 1st time, try your computer or if you used an android phone the 1st time, try an apple device)
  • Have your apartment address ready and call the Comcast Bulk Q number: (855) 307-4896
  • If asked about your account, state that you are under the UC Merced Bulk Q Comcast Account
  • The technician will ask you to create a new network name and password - please keep it for your records

If after trying all of the above you are still unable to connect to the wifi, please email Debbie Henderson at housing@ucmerced.edu or call 209-228-2293 for further assistance.
