If you want to use a refrigerator or microwave in your room, you must use a Microfridge.
Rent: $237.59 per year
Why We Require Microfridges
The university is moving to Microfridges because they:
- Reduce energy consumption.
- Provide a more sustainable living environment.
- Comply with outlet specifications for electrical use.
- Shut down when smoke begins, triggering smoke detectors less often.
Exceptions: McBryde and Bates House
McBryde and Bates House already have microfridges in each room. There is no need for residents in these halls to rent or buy a microfridge.
Microwaves and Fridges in On-Campus Apartments
Mini fridges are not allowed in apartments. You will have a full size refrigerator in the kitchen. Microwaves are allowed in the kitchen only.
The 1st Deadline to order a MicroFridge is Wednesday, August 4th at noon. Orders placed prior to the 1st deadline will be delivered before the main student move-in. Orders placed after that deadline will be delivered based on the renters' residence hall AFTER classes have started.
