Located at 601 Clyde Street across from Cathedral Mansions, Shady Oak consists of efficiency, two-bedroom, three-bedroom, and suite-style apartments. Fitness room, laundry facilities, TV room and lounge are available in the building.

Cable and Internet

Webster residents must do the following to login to WIFI:

  1. Reset the device. The Xfinity gateway has a physical reset button on the rear of the unit. To reset to factory default, you must hold down the button for at least 60 seconds. It take five minutes for the device to reboot and power on.
  2. Once powered on, the Xfinity gateway will broadcast the default wireless network name (SSID) that is on the side of the unit.
  3. Connect to that wireless network using the password printed on the side of the gateway.

If you are having any issues with this process, please refer to the Troubleshooting Guide.
