MicroFridge Units

Beginning in the fall semester of 2021, the Office of Residential Life has partnered with Collegiate Concepts to furnish each traditional residence hall room with a leased MicroFridge unit.

A Microfridge an all-in-one combination refrigerator, freezer, and microwave oven engineered with Safe Plug technology to save electricity and reduce the risk of overloading circuits.

This upgrade will come at no cost to you! Student rooms in the Promenade Apartments, Kade Dusenberg German House, and Sorority Housing Complex will not be furnished with a MicroFridge unit as residents of these communities have access to community kitchen spaces.
