Microfridge Rental

Microfridge Rental


When and how can I order a microfridge rental?

You can order a microfridge at any time, even after the start of the fall term! Simply contact the vendor, Campus Specialties, Inc. by calling 1-800-525-7307 or visiting their website at https://www.mymicrofridge.com/. The cost of the rental is $154.99 for the full academic year and $82.49 for a single semester.

Do I need to know my housing assignment before placing my order for a microfridge?

No, you can order by visiting www.mymicrofridge.com at any time. 

How does the microfridge rental work? When will I receive it?

A microfridge unit will be installed in every traditional residence hall room prior to the resident move-in period. Even if you and your roommate have not placed an order, a microfridge will still be present in the room when you move-in. There will be an informational flyer in the microwave describing the rental process. Should you or your roommate decide to rent the unit already in your room, you just need to follow the instructions on the flyer. If you decide not to rent the unit by the provided deadline, the microfridge vendor will make arrangements to remove the microfridge from your room. You will be notified via email with the details of the removal. 

Residents residing in an apartment would need to have a contract in place by August 13th in order to have the unit delivered prior to the main move-in weekend.

Can a room have more than one microfridge?

No. Only one microfridge unit will be installed to each traditional residence hall room. An exception will only be made in the case of an approved accommodation based on medical documentation provided to the Academic Success Center and Disability Services. 

If I have my own mini fridge and microwave, can I bring those instead?

No, not in the traditional residence halls (non-apartments). The combination appliance, commonly referred to as microfridge, comes equipped with technology that manages the power draw of the entire unit from one single source and ensures the rear outlet never draws too much power, which could trip a circuit breaker.  This is an important feature when we are talking about installing hundreds of these units in each building. In addition, the unit comes standard with other very beneficial features, such as a smoke sensor that will shut off the microwave if it senses something burning, as well as multiple charging ports for devices such as cell phones.

Non-Nexus apartment complexes are permitted to bring a mini-fridge and other kitchen appliances as per the Housing policies.
